AZGOP Chair Kelli Ward Opposes Ducey Recall, Calls For Defeat Of GOP Legislators

As tensions continue to mount over efforts to force an audit or a redo of the AZGOP’s leadership elections, embattled Chairman Kelli Ward has taken her war against signers of a call for a Special Meeting to a new level. After State Representative Mark Finchem appeared on The Morning Ritual with Garret Lewis yesterday to discuss his efforts to rein in Governor Doug Ducey’s executive powers regarding emergency declarations, he was followed by Ward, who was asked by Lewis about Finchem’s progress. Ward began her interview claiming that it was her job to get “good conservatives, America First people, representing us” then spoke about election integrity efforts regarding last November’s election.

Without intending any irony, Ward also claimed that “We’re going to get to the bottom of the audit, no matter how much the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, their attorneys, and others associated with the County drag their feet, we’re going to get to the bottom of it.” Critics of Ward have pointed out how her own talking points for her controversial election, her legal battles to prevent any such audit of her own victory, and her personal determination to prevent any such audit for the GOP’s own elections, are hypocritical and undermine the GOP’s arguments when combating suspected voter fraud in Arizona elections.

Ward then launched into a broadside against Doug Ducey, and later Finchem and other legislators, in spite of Finchem and many of those same legislators helping to lead the fight against Ducey’s Covid-related mandates.

Ward accused Ducey of working to prevent the AZGOP from being successful for the last several years, accused him of tyranny, and even said that Ducey killed Arizonans by banning the use of hydroxychloroquine, although Ward also waffled on recalling him, saying that he was term-limited and would be done in less than two years anyway, so it made more sense to leave him in office.

2. It certainly looks like both the House and the Senate are available

and if I recall correctly, redistricting is done by an independent commission.

The Arizona Senate consists of 16 Republicans and 14 Democrats. The Arizona House consists of 31 Republicans and 29 Democrats.

Like many other states it really depends on which party can GOTV.
