Dr. Ward is a wife, mother and candidate for the U.S. Senate from Arizona. She’s practiced medicine as a family care and emergency room doctor, according to a release.

“Dr. Ward, of Lake Havasu City, is a former Arizona state senator who, during her two terms in the state legislature, established a proven track record of passing legislation that supported small businesses, preserved the Second Amendment, decreased the size of government, addressed the opioid crisis, protected vulnerable Arizona students and fought Common Core,” according to the release.

“Dr. Ward was one the most effective leaders in the Arizona State Senate during her final year in office, getting 19 separate bills through the legislature and to the governor’s desk to be signed into law,” according to the release.

She is running in 2018 to fill the open U.S. Senate seat vacated by retiring Sen. Jeff Flake.

“She is a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump and a true advocate for the ‘America First’ agenda,” according to the release.
