Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) campaign launched an attack against their primary opponent, Arizona state Sen. Kelli Ward, over her willingness to discuss chemtrails as a legitimate topic. The attack ad came in the form of local television ad spots.
McCain labeled Ward, “Chemtrail Kelli” in the ads.
In 2014, Ward said she was open to listening to chemtrail theories, which is the basis of McCain’s new attack ad.
Per the video:
In 2014, Kelli Ward organized, at taxpayer expense, a community town hall event to discuss “chemtrails” – the widely debunked conspiracy theory that the trails left in the sky by high-flying aircraft are chemical or biological agents deliberately sprayed on the public for sinister purposes. At the meeting, for which she brought state Department of Environmental Quality staff to Kingman, Arizona, Ward pledged to follow up with federal officials and even possibly introduce legislation on this “chemtrails” issue. In March 2015, Ward said she was undecided on the “chemtrails” conspiracy theory, saying, “I don’t really have any opinions about ‘chemtrails’ one way or the other.” Now, Even long after the event, Kelli is still willing to talk about “chemtrails.” When asked in April, 2016 about her taxpayer funded “chemtrail” town hall, Kelli had this to say: “I’d do it again. Of course I would do it again.”

This is a low blow for the McCain campaign. Ward merely said she was open to the idea of their existence. McCain’s approach is an attempt to shut down any and all conversations regarding geoengineering.
