Ward announced Wednesday on her radio show “The Kelli Ward Connection” that she will take on the Republican senator, who has been a consistent critic of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
“I’m going to take on the establishment once again,” Ward said. She also challenged Sen. John McCain in this year’s Senate primary.
“Sen. Flake might be semi-well-liked but he doesn’t have the longevity of John McCain, he doesn’t have the reach of John McCain, he doesn’t have the war hero status of John McCain,” Ward said. “And so I think that it’s an excellent opportunity for us.”Ward encouraged listeners to send in hashtags supporting her race.
