Republican members of the Arizona Legislature are calling on Kelli Ward, the controversial chair of the state Republican Party, to either audit the election processes and results of her win on Jan. 23 or to remove her calls to audit the results of the 2020 presidential election, which President Joe Biden won.

More than a dozen GOP members of the state Senate and House of Representatives signed onto the letter, obtained Thursday by The Arizona Republic.

Ward is among the Republicans in Arizona and nationally who spread baseless allegations of voter fraud and claimed Biden and Democrats stole the 2020  presidential election from former President Donald Trump.

At a state GOP meeting, Ward was reelected as party chair by just 42 votes. The election went to a runoff between her and southern Arizona businessman Sergio Arellano.
