Normally I research a story as much as possible before writing about it, especially when it has to do with a candidate. No further research necessary to pass this harsh judgment on Senate candidate Kelli Ward from Arizona. She’s an idiot.
Kelli Ward made the comment on Facebook hours before McCain died Saturday. Ward had unsuccessfully challenged McCain in the 2016 GOP primary and is now running for a seat being vacated by Sen. Jeff Flake.
A post from a Ward campaign aide questions whether the Friday announcement was timed to distract from a bus tour that Ward had launched that day.
Ward commented: “I think they wanted to have a particular narrative that is negative to me.”
After her comment was publicized, Ward deleted it and wrote “the media loves a narrative” and said she “feels compassion” for McCain’s family.
I’m embarrassed to admit I supported her when she ran against McCain in 2016.
This sort of self-centered attitude, feeling like the McCain family took her into consideration when announcing the impending death of their patriarch, is why she does not deserve to be anywhere near Washington DC. Yes, the media loves a narrative, but it wasn’t them who created this one. Ward created it with her odd perspectives.
