A political operative who helped raise millions of dollars to support President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign is joining the U.S. Senate campaign of former Arizona state Sen. Kelli Ward.

Longtime Republican Sen. John McCain made one last campaign stop Monday as he seeks his party's nomination against two primary election opponents ahead of what is shaping up to be a strong general election challenge.

One of three Republicans challenging Sen. John McCain in this month's primary election says he is suspending his campaign, although his name will remain on the ballot.

Democratic Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick raised nearly $1.8 million in the second quarter of the year for her U.S. Senate campaign. As Arizona Public Radio’s Ryan Heinsius reports, that’s almost a quarter million dollars more than incumbent Republican Senator John McCain.


Arizona state Sen. Kelli Ward is set to formally resign her seat to focus on her Republican primary challenge to U.S. Sen. John McCain.

Ward says in a letter to Senate President Andy Biggs that she will vacate her seat on Tuesday. The Dec. 2 letter says she plans to devote her energy to defeating the five-term senator and 2008 Republican presidential nominee.

Ward is a physician from Lake Havasu City whose current district spans much of Mohave and all of La Paz counties.
