McSally enters high-profile Arizona race for Senate seat

McSally enters high-profile Arizona race for Senate seat

Martha McSally Shows Off Her Pilot Skills Her action-packed announcement video trades on numerous same themes she used in her House campaigns, stressing her status of the first American female to fly in combat, winning a fight to refuse to don Muslim garb while serving in the Middle East, and as a congresswoman working to protecting funding for the locally produced A-10 fighter jet. "That's why I told Washington Republicans to grow a pair of ovaries and get the job done". She retired in 2010 as a full-bird colonel. "It's a time of big and defining choices", McSally told the crowd after she'd safely landed.

Little more than a year ago, McSally refused to endorse Trump, and she referred to his sexually predatory comments caught on the "Access Hollywood" tape as "disgusting". The security of the United States, and so much else, will be on the line in these coming years. "She opposed Donald Trump as a candidate and has undermined him as president, which is why leading conservatives are rejecting McSally and are lining up behind a true reformer in Dr. Kelli Ward". Former sheriff Joe Arpaio is also running.

"As we discussed on Tuesday, we won't allow our troops to be held hostage by DACA negotiations".

She also co-sponsored an immigration plan released by House conservatives this week that would reduce legal immigration levels by 25 percent, block federal grants to sanctuary cities and restrict the number of relatives that immigrants already in the USA can bring here. Trump won Arizona in 2016 by less than 4 percentage points.

The Arizona race is seen by Republican and Democratic operatives as a key battleground in the competition for the Senate majority. "She has launched a one-woman campaign against a military policy in Saudi Arabia that forced her to wear a long black Islamic robe over her Air Force uniform". "After eight years of fighting, I won my battle for the religious freedom of American servicewomen".

You'd figure that with two primary opponents from the mad fringe of the Republican Party, Congresswoman Martha McSally might want to exploit her reputation for being something of a moderate.

The primary is not until August 28.
