PHOENIX, Ariz. (KSAZ) - Dr. Kelli Ward announced her candidacy for the Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party on Monday.
The osteopathic physician and former state senator from Lake Havasu, AZ, says she decided to run after "much prayer and careful consideration" and plans to unite the party.
"The Party of Lincoln and Goldwater should be one that is led by the grassroots; unfortunately, over the last four years, the grassroots within the Republican Party have been silenced and disenfranchised both nationally and at the state level in Arizona."
"The hard work begins today, and it starts with new leadership at the top that will work tirelessly to bring together all Republicans and usher in an overwhelming 2020 victory for our candidates at every level of government."
Ward's new campaign comes after she lost her U.S. Senate primary bid this year to Martha McSally.
The election takes place on January 26 and will be voted on by many newly elected state committee people.
