Senator John McCain’s Republican primary rival pounced on the news that her former Republican adversary has brain cancer according to the Washington Post.

Kelli Ward, Senator McCain’s primary rival last year, is ghoulishly urging her former rival to step-aside so that she can take his place in the U.S. Senate.

I would never presume to say what someone’s prognosis is without having examined them. As a Christian, I know there can always be miracles. But the likelihood that John McCain is going to be able to come back to the Senate and be at full force for the people of our state and the people of the United States is low,” said Ward. Asked if her name is getting “thrown in the hat” as a possible replacement, Ward said: “Well, you know, I certainly hope so. Because, you know, I have a proven track record from years in the state Senate of being extremely effective and of listening to the voice of the people that I represent.

She continued, “We can’t wait until the 2018 election waiting around to accomplish the Trump agenda, to secure the border and stop illegal immigration and repeal Obamacare and fix the economy and fix the veterans administration,” she said. “All those things need to be done, and we can’t be at a standstill while we wait for John McCain to determine what he’s going to do.”

In the past, Ms. Ward has claimed that Senator McCain was close to dying (even before the recent diagnosis) and was losing his mind to dementia.
