Kelli Ward, a Republican seeking Arizona’s Senate seat in Tuesday’s primary, issued an apology Monday after she wrote in a Facebook comment Saturday that Sen. John McCain — whose family had hours before said he would be ending cancer treatment — had a “particular narrative that is negative to me.” McCain died hours later at the age of 81.

“I do understand how many could have misconstrued my comments as insensitive, and for this I apologize,” Ward said at a press conference at her headquarters. “The intention of my comments were in no way directed at Sen. McCain or his family.”

According to screenshots of the conversation posted on Twitter by Arizona political reporters, an aide for Ward, Jonathan Williams, wondered if it was “just a coincidence” that the announcement of McCain ending medical treatment came the day Ward was launching a statewide bus tour, her big push before Tuesday’s primary.

Ward replied: “I think they wanted to have a particular narrative that is negative to me.”
