Arizona GOP chairwoman Kelli Ward promised to stop Mark Kelly — husband of gunshot victim former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) and Senate candidate – “dead in his tracks.”
“Support the Republican Party of Arizona today and, together, we’ll stop gun-grabber Mark Kelly dead in his tracks,” Ward wrote in a fundraising email, Bloomberg reported Friday.
Neither the Arizona Republican party nor the Mark Kelly campaign immediately responded to TPM’s requests for comment.
Kelly, a former astronaut, is challenging Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ).
Giffords was shot in the head in 2011 while holding a constituent meeting in a grocery store parking lot. Six people were killed at the event. Giffords was gravely wounded, immediately underwent surgery and was put into a medically induced coma.

I suspect that Arizona is second only to Texas in numbers of ignorant, cruel, and deranged RW Extremists.

The truth is, there’s no such thing as being “anti-Fascist.” Either you are a decent human being with a conscience, or you are a fascist.

@coldmountaintrail yes, he is running against Martha McSally for John McCain’s seat seat. McSally was appointed to the seat by the Arizona governor after she lost in 2018.
