Keep Arizona red? Must have missed 2018.— Pete Bacon (@BaconGrillin123) August 8, 2019
Nice! Maybe McSally can actually win her seat this time instead of having it bestowed upon her like a participation trophy. Oh well, I guess the right does believe in affirmative action when it’s for mediocre white candidates.— Shawn Bawn (@unclebobfoggy) August 8, 2019
Didn’t happen in 2018, won’t happen now. When will you figure out you can’t win an election.— Just Joan 🤷♀️ (@joanschulze) August 8, 2019
Here is a little backstory to help clarify the previous Tweets.
Dr. (Chemtrail) Kelli Ward, ran against Martha McSally in the Arizona Republican Primary for outgoing Senator Jeff Flake‘s seat when he retired. McSally won the primary in a landslide, beating both Ward and the very controversial Ex-Sheriff of Maricopa County, Joe Arpaio by 52% of the vote.
However, in the general election McSally ran against very liberal and openly gay, Kyrsten Sinema, who defeated McSally by 50% to 47%, (3% were write in candidates).
Even though McSally lost the general election Governor Doug Ducey awarded her the seat which was vacated by Senator John McCain’s recent passing. Jon Kyl had temporarily held the seat during the election.
Technically, Arizona turned blue, or at least purple, during the 2018 midterm elections, and it doesn’t show much sign of turning back anytime soon.
No thanks. Voted straight Republican ballot for over 30 years. I just can't stand the hate-filled rhetoric of Trump and Kelli Ward.— Stephen Drake (@StephenDrake2) August 8, 2019
Speaking as a former Republican, you guys are welcome to follow your Trump Train right over the nearest cliff.— Gordon Beeding (@gbeeding) August 8, 2019
The Republicans are a dying party as evidenced by the huge loss of seats and Congress in the 2018 midterms. Trump couldn’t keep momentum despite a booming economy. Now we see almost daily incumbent Republicans declaring that they won’t even run in 2020. Trump is #1AndDone.— A Farmer (@GoodDogsAlways1) August 8, 2019

There were other observations as well.

I can kinda see that
What about the chemtrails?— Mister Peabody, not a puppet (@jpacek) August 8, 2019
In keeping with tradition since the 2016 elections, it seems lying and willful ignorance is the new campaign slogan for the Republican party in 2020.
Who cares about facts anymore anyway right? It seems to just be easier for them to make those up as they move forward.
I’m sure if Kelli keeps trying 5 or 6 more times to run for something, she might actually luck into it! Or maybe she’s waiting for somebody else to die off so Ducey can hand it to her on a silver platter.
