US Senate Candidate Dr Kelli Ward: Op-Ed In The June 25 Washington Examiner: Ignore-The-Open-Border-Establishment; President-Trump-Is-Right-On-Immigration Yesterday the Washington Examiner published my latest op-ed...It's called "Ignore the open-border establishment - President Trump is right on immigration," and I encourage you to read it here and share it with other concerned patriots.This piece is so important because illegal immigration has become our nation's No. 1 crisis... and we need solutions that work.We need to secure our borders and implement a variety of America First immigration policies that will keep our country safe and secure. This is why I am running so hard to defeat my opponents Martha McSally and Kyrsten Sinema in this race. Both favor policies that cater to illegal aliens over American citizens, and both of them continue to oppose President Trump and his plan to build the Wall.
I'm running for the U.S. Senate to represent our constituents -- not citizens of foreign countries -- and put America First again.
Chip in. When even Republicans refuse to secure our borders, it’s time for new leadership in Washington. We recently released our latest ad "Relentless", highlighting my mission to secure our southern border. watch here

US Senate candidate Martha McSally: We are 5 days out from our critical end-of-quarter deadline, and our digital fundraising numbers are not where they need to be. I am over $40,000 short of the MINIMUM target for the quarter. Unless people like YOU step up right now, we are not going to make it. CONTRIBUTE . This is the strategic budget my team created at the beginning of this campaign. My campaign team runs a very tight ship, and I know they have budgeted down to the day, and if we don't hit this budgetary goal it WILL mean real consequences. We are depending on the money we raise before our JUNE 30th deadline to fund the next phase of this campaign.If we fail to hit our goals, it could make the difference between a us winning the campaign or sending another career politician Democrat to the U.S. Senate. We have the chance to right this ship now, but it's going to take action from people like you. If every person reading this email donated $25 today, CLOSE THE GAP → DONATE $25 I am asking you to dig down deep today, and think about this election and all that is at stake. If we return the power in the U.S. Senate to Chuck Schumer and his henchmen, they will put a stop to the American First agenda that has boosted out economy and made this country safer.
You have my solemn word that each dollar you donate TODAY will go directly to my fight to become the next Republican Senator on the ground here in Arizona. My ambitious democrat opponent has amassed nearly a $7 million dollar war chest in the YEARS she's been preparing and campaigning for this seat. All while I spend each day I am deployed in our nation's capitol maintaining mission focus to get things done and put our county back on the path to prosperity. I'm coming to you now because I know there is so much left to be done in that fight, and the U.S. Senate is at stake.
