This was published on azcentral.com  You need an account to read the entire artcle.  Use the headline from this to search on their site.  We post this because we posted the same activity by Wendy Rogers who distributed an 8 page "newspaper" pretending it was real news but is only about Wendy since her campaign thought it was a good idea to try to trick voters.  It now seems Kelli Ward is doing the same thing.

Someone along the way commented on Ward's drumbeat to get Arpaio out of the race.  The statement, loosely, went like this:  Trump had  eleven opponents.  Not once did he call for any to drop out.  

We believe every person in America can strive to run for office.  They need only get sufficient signatures to get on the ballot but do not need anyone's permission.  The voters will do the rest.

NOTE:  Pres. Trump has avoided endorsing or supporting anyone in this race but if he did, he may well endorse his friend from day one, Joe Arpaio.  The other two are faking having been on the Trump Train from the beginning.  Thanks to RJ for this report.

Kelli Ward, a Republican U.S. Senate candidate, is distributing a campaign flyer with a photo of herself standing alongside President Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

Trump agreed to pose for a photo with Ward during the December 2017 visit but specifically asked that it not be shared, according to a White House official who witnessed the brief exchange but is not authorized to speak publicly about it.

Ward, a former state senator from Lake Havasu City, has been seeking the president’s endorsement since the earliest days of her campaign; she also failed to capture Trump’s endorsement during her unsuccessful 2016 primary challenge of U.S. Sen. John McCain. For nearly a year, Ward has touted a tweet in which Trump invoked her name while slamming U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake, who is retiring.

The matter is not trivial: Trump’s blessing could be a crucial factor in the


three-way Republican primary race, which also includes former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a Trump political ally, and U.S. Rep. Martha McSally, who also has been touting her access to Trump on the campaign trail.

So far, Trump has not officially endorsed any candidate in the Arizona GOP race.

Early ballots for the primary will be mailed out Wednesday.

Prior to emailing questions Monday afternoon to Ward’s campaign spokesman about her use of the photo, The Arizona Republic could find no other instances in which the photo of Ward and Trump was shared.

Monday evening — after her campaign exchanged emails with The Republic about whether Ward had permission to distribute the photo — Ward blasted out the photo of her with Trump on Twitter, along with a tweet he posted in August 2017.

Ward wrote in the tweet that she thanks God every day for Trump and “the amazing job he is doing” to “Make America Great Again,” a nod to the president’s 2016 campaign slogan.

Zachery Henry, Ward’s spokesman, said in an emailed statement that the White House official’s description of the “photograph/conversation” was inaccurate.

“Dr. Ward is quite proud to have spent time with the President and received his tweet of encouragement last year,” Henry wrote, adding that the other two GOP candidates are playing up their own relationships with Trump.

The White House’s press office did not respond to a request for comment.

A person familiar with the operations of the Trump campaign said in a written statement Thursday that the president “likes all of the candidates in the race very much” and looks forward to supporting the Republican nominee in the general election.

“President Trump has not endorsed anyone in the GOP Senate primary in Arizona and any photos or other general expressions of support shouldn’t be read as such,” the person wrote.

The small photo on Ward’s flyer appears on the left-hand corner of a onepage primer illustrating the differences between Ward and rival McSally, of Tucson.

McSally is the best-funded Republican in the primary, and polls show her leading. She is currently on the air with ads using sound bites from Trump praising her as “the real deal” and “tough.”

The picture could imply Ward has landed an endorsement she does not have in a race where Trump’s approval is the most coveted endorsement of all.

The flyer’s photo is accompanied by the August 2017 tweet from Trump that blasted Flake, who condemned the nastiness of Republican politics in the era of Trump in announcing he would not seek re-election.

“Great to see that Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Flake Jeff Flake, who is WEAK on borders, crime and a nonfactor in Senate,” Trump’s tweet said. “He’s toxic!”

Trump’s tweet has been featured on the campaign’s social-media pages for the past 11 months, Henry wrote.

“... and we’re quite proud of it,” Henry wrote. “Especially considering our two GOP opponents have received no such public encouragement from the President.”

Ward’s flyer added a speech bubble that pointed to Trump’s tweet.

The bubble said, “AND ‘Martha McSally is Worse than Jeff Flake,’ ” a reference to a headline from an opinion story published on the politically conservative website Townhall.com.

Ward’s campaign flyer was distributed to voters at a Republican women’s club event last week.

For many of these voters, candidates’ loyalty to Trump is the key to their vote.

They are fed up with Arizona’s two senators, McCain and Flake, whose animosity with Trump began in 2015, soon after Trump announced his presidential bid.

All of the candidates for the GOP primary are touting their relationship with Trump in campaign ads, during media interviews and in stump speeches.

If elected, Ward pledged to help the president build a wall along the U.S.Mexico border and repeal the Affordable Care Act.

“Strongly supports President Trump and is a true advocate for the America First agenda — proudly voted for him in 2016,” her campaign flyer said, in attempting to draw a contrast with McSally.

McSally did not endorse Trump in the 2016 election — and may not have voted for him.

Wrong question.  Do you really want to contribute to loosing the senate to Sinema?  Is McSally worse than Sinema or does she help keep the senate in the hands of the Rs for the Supreme Court?  It seems ppl think the R will automatically win because this is AZ but that is not true this year.

Unfortunately, money decides elections as it is the ads that influence the many ill informed voters.  McSally has the GOP $$$$ ,,,  Ward may have Mercers $$$ (how much I don't know) and where Arpaio is getting his $$$ I don't know.

Though many important issues are before the American people NONE is more important than putting America in a position to control its own destiny. Without it the is no way to MAGA.

To be in control of its destiny the U.S. must get out of the U.N., out from under our present monetary policy that is in compliance with the 5th plank of the Communist Manifesto and which can only result in the owners of the world's central banks eventually holding title to all real wealth of their choice, a mortgage on the remainder, and a claim on all future production, and out from under the ungodly and unconstitutionally created debt Americans theoretically owe as a result of current policy.

As a State Senator Ward had an opportunity to address this issue. She chose to ignore it. But then so has every elected official I'm aware of. ALL have chosen to "adhere" to enemies of our Constitution and support this policy; the very definition of Treason. 

Walter will you be casting a vote for a AZ U.S. Senator?

Patricia:

I will wait and see who is on the ballot and may or may not vote for a Senator. What I can say is that I won't vote for Kelli or Sally as both have shown themselves to be in support of the 5th plank of the Communist Manifesto which was passed and is being perpetuated by enemies of our Constitution. As a Sheriff Joe wasn't in a position to address this issue but perhaps he could have arrested any number of our elected officials and charged them with crimes falling under Title 18 of the U.S. Criminal Code.

I see the facts as telling us they are guilty of a variety of crimes. This is a result of America's problem; it being too many people failing to acknowledge the importance of James 4:17 and to honor the passage by doing what is right.We have become a lawless nation so far as politicians are concerned.  I will not intentionally do what I think is wrong. 

By failing to acknowledge and address this ungodly and unconstitutional policy those supporting it are "adhering" to enemies of our Constitution and are guilty of Treason. I cannot vote for someone I find to be a criminal and I will no longer vote for the lesser of evils.

I'm speechless around your comment Walter at this moment.

With all due respect to you, Walter Myers, when you write about matters such as leaving the UN or abolishing the Federal Reserve, how can a state senator make changes to those institutions?  

Angie:

A short history lesson. we the people created the states. States created the Constitution; the first three articles of which created the three branches of the Federal government as their AGENT and delegated to it some very specific and limited powers; all other being retained to the States and people. (see the 10th amendment) As the PRINCIPALS  to the Constitution and under the Law of Agency, the states hold the ultimate authority and responsibility for the proper interpretation and implementation of the Constitution. 

Unfortunately, our states - rather than exercising their responsibility - have accepted the role of being servile dependents (minions) of the Federal government. Kelli, be it for lack of knowledge, courage, or integrity accepted this role and did nothing to address what I perceive to be about the third most important issue facing we the people. Would she assume a different view if elected? I'm unwilling to bet she would. 

States historically have accepted the role to stand strong against the tyranny of the Federal government especially in Arizona with SB1070 and Prop 200, so we can agree to disagree. I am optimistic about our candidate's ultimate victory and the subsequent awareness voters will exercise to hold her accountable.

Propose a bill and build support!

First let me state that I am a totally committed Kelli Ward supporter, a volunteer for her campaign, and have a bit in my mouth to contain the excitement of casting my vote for her.

Elect Kelli Ward she will make AZ proud and be our everyday hero!

Patricia:

Your position inspires me to ask: do facts mean nothing to you?
