Many members of the GOP have given up on Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn the election. They stood by as Trump lost lawsuit after lawsuit but once the Electoral College certified Biden‘s win, a majority of them moved on.
Arizona GOP Senate candidate Kelli Ward wrote a comment on social media Saturday suggesting that a statement issued by Sen. John McCain’s family was intended to hurt her in her bid to win a U.S. Senate seat. On Friday Senator McCain’s family released a public statement saying they had decided to end the senator’s medical treatment for brain cancer which had been going on since the beginning of the year. Senator McCain died Saturday, just a few hours after Ward made the suggestion on Facebook.
A Kelli Ward victory over McCain would increase the odds for Democrat Rep. Kirkpatrick to win the general election and become US Senator.
