People like Kelli Ward "aren't welcome" in the U.S. Senate, Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., tweeted Saturday.
Manchin took a swipe at Ward, a former Arizona state senator who ran against U.S. Sen. John McCain in 2016, after she urged McCain to resign following his cancer diagnosis.
"I hope that Sen. McCain is going to look long and hard at this, that his family and advisers are going to look at this and they're going to advise him to step away as quickly as possible," she said on WOWO 1190 AM Saturday. "So that the business of the country and the business of Arizona being represented at the federal level can move forward."
McCain, 80, revealed on Wednesday that he had been diagnosed with a primarily glioblastoma, a type of brain tumor. He had surgery to remove a tumor-related blood clot last week but said he will return to Congress soon.
Manchin said the people of Arizona deserve better than Ward.
