GOP’er Kelly Townsend voted to enter Arizona into the Soros-funded national “popular vote” initiative, which is meant to effectively abolish the Electoral College and give her state’s electoral votes to the winner of unsecured presidential elections conducted in blue states. She’s also played a central role in the Convention of States movement which, like the popular vote initiative, has been backed by George Soros as a means to re-write the US Constitution. Townsend, an incumbent State Senator who formerly billed herself as an America First conservative, publicly turned on the MAGA movement after failing to secure Trump’s endorsement and faces Trump-backed State Senator Wendy Rogers in a GOP nomination bid after both incumbents were drawn into a new 7th Legislative District.

Kelly Townsend co-sponsored legislation in 2016 that would have handed Arizona’s Electoral College votes over to Hillary Clinton after she was reported as winning the national popular vote in an election that was wrought with non-citizen voting and other blue state illegalities that affected national vote totals in favor of the Democrat. Despite Clinton’s supposed winning of the national popular vote, 45th President Donald J. Trump defeated her in an Electoral College landslide, taking 304 of those votes compared to Clinton’s 227.

The national popular vote movement, which has been entered into by a number of blue states, has been backed by far-left organizations financially fueled by George Soros. Meant to effectively destroy the Electoral College system designed by America’s founders, states that enter into the agreement give their electoral votes to whichever candidate is reported as winning the popular vote nationwide, regardless of what the voters of those individual states have to say about it.

Ultimately, the popular vote legislation co-sponsored by Townsend fell in the Arizona State Senate, never becoming law and allowing for the state’s electoral votes to go to Trump in 2016, the winner of that state’s own popular vote.

Beyond her apparent distaste for the Electoral College, Townsend has raised eyebrows as of late since her work with the Soros-backed Convention of States movement came to the forefront of her State Senate campaign. Townsend has served as a national figure, including as president, in the Article V Convention of States movement, the idea of which has been backed by a number of liberal and progressive political groups and is endorsed by the likes of Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. With links to Soros and the Council on Foreign Relations, massive money has been thrown to those who support the movement, raising even more questions.

As her GOP primary race against Wendy Rogers heats up, Convention of States activists have been sending around mailers making patently false claims about Rogers’ political record and views, given her opposition to the Soros-backed convention movement.

“Dear George Soros and the New World Order, I will never vote for your Convention of States ever,” Rogers recently Tweeted. “You WILL NEVER rewrite our Constitution. Attack me all you want losers. Your deceptive bill won’t even make it out of committee next session.”

The Convention of States, Rogers says, will be “dead on arrival” when it comes time for the Arizona State Senate to vote on joining it.
