Arizona GOP Censures House Speaker After He Testifies to Jan. 6 Committee

HeadlineJul 21, 2022

In Arizona, the state Republican Party’s executive committee has censured state House Speaker Russell Bowers after he told the House January 6 committee that Trump and his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, pressured him to overturn Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory in Arizona. Arizona Republican Party Chair Kelli Ward confirmed Bowers’s censure this week in a statement declaring him “no longer a Republican in good standing.” Kelli Ward is a former Arizona state senator. According to Politico, she and her husband are under investigation by the Justice Department after they joined an effort to deliver false slates of electors to Congress certifying Trump — and not Biden — the winner of the 2020 election in Arizona.
