Tempe, Arizona - Dr. Kelli Ward of Arizona, candidate for U.S. Senate, released the following statement today on Arizona Senator Jeff Flake announcing his retirement:

"Arizona voters are the big winner in Jeff Flake's decision to not seek re-election. They deserve a strong conservative in the U.S. Senate who supports President Trump and the 'America First' agenda. Our campaign proudly offers an optimistic path forward for Arizona and America."
