Ward, on the eve of her Senate primary and just two days after McCain's death, made a number of veiled swipes at the man she ran against in 2016.

Ward at first denied during a Monday press conference that she'd called for McCain to step down right after he announced his cancer diagnosis last year (she'd also suggested she get appointed to the seat). When a reporter confronted her with the exact quote, she doubled down on her earlier remarks, saying that McCain should have stepped aside earlier if his disease meant he couldn't do his job well.

She then compared McCain's illness to Sen. Bob Menendez's (D-NJ) corruption trial, and argued that politicians like them should step aside more often.
