GOP Senate Candidate: John McCain Ended Treatment To Push ‘Negative Narrative’ About Me



Arizona Republican Kelli Ward actually believes that John McCain decided to stop his cancer treatment for brain cancer and announced those plans publicly in an attempt to push a “negative narrative” against her Senate campaign.

Ward and one of her campaign staffers shared a Facebook thread about their conspiracy theory which was later screenshot and shared by Arizona TV reporter Brahm Resnik. In the FB thread, the pair talked about what they considered the odd timing of McCain’s death.

“I wonder if John McCain’s trying to steal attention from Ward’s bus tour by announcing his life is coming to an end,” the staffer wrote.

Ward campaigned for John McCain during the 2016 election cycle but has since become a far-right Trump supporting extremist. She is now running for Senator Jeff Flake’s vacated seat.

“I think they wanted to have a particular narrative that was negative to me,” Ward wrote in response to the conspiracy theory.

After Resnik clearly showed Ward’s comment, she deleted the Facebook messages and then tried to blame “fake news” for the narrative she very clearly created, taking a play right out of Donald Trump’s playbook.

John McCain, a decorated war veteran and long-time member of Congress died on Saturday. His family released the following statement following his death.

Senator John Sidney McCain III died at 4:28pm on August 25, 2018. With the Senator when he passed were his wife Cindy and their family. At his death, he had served the United States of America faithfully for sixty years.

Attacking the Senator for dying of brain cancer is disgusting, and hopefully, Ward’s tasteless remarks will come back to haunt her party as voters take to the polls.
