Arizona GOP chair Kelli Ward rejects calls for audit of party elections

(CNN)Kelli Ward on Friday rejected calls for an audit into her recent reelection as the chair of the Arizona Republican Party and other party races, arguing that the state GOP does not have the structure to review them.

"We don't have the structure to be able to do an audit," she said on KFYI's radio show "The Conservative Circus with James T. Harris," adding, "But we welcome their input to make elections bigger."

She added that the structure for an audit "doesn't exist in our process, our procedures, our bylaws, in statute."

Ward, one of the most fervent proponents of former President Donald Trump's false claim that the 2020 election was stolen from him, claimed not only that an audit was not possible, but that calls for it were being pushed as a way to attack her.

as usual, in their in-house elections. Wouldn't surprise me a bit, being that they seem to accuse everyone else of the same thing (rigging the elections)...
