Asked about John McCain’s recent complaint that Donald Trump makes his re-election prospects harder, the Arizona senator’s main opponent in the Republican primary says he’s right.
Kelli Ward, a former state legislator, said Friday on “The Laura Ingraham Show” that McCain has been in Washington too long and has strayed too far from the conservative principles of the people he represents.
“John McCain is the poster boy of what’s happening or not happening in Washington,” she said.
McCain recently told donors that he is in for “the race of my life,” saying much of his vulnerability was due to the likelihood of Donald Trump as the GOP nominee. McCain was referring to an anticipated general election matchup with Democrat Anne Kirkpatrick, but Ward said McCain will have trouble in the primary.
