The Republican congresswoman hopes to come out on top in a crowded field of candidates to fill the seat being vacated by Sen.

"Like our president, I'm exhausted of PC politicians and their BS excuses", McSally says. I'm a fighter pilot, and I talk like one. McSally also cleverly adapts the ancient conservative injunction to RINOs to "grow a pair" by saying the GOP should "grow a pair of ovaries", presumably like hers.

Rep. Martha McSally speaks at a rally, Friday, Jan. 12, 2018, in Tucson, Ariz. Democrats have another advantage: Their party's leading candidate early on, three-term incumbent Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, faces a relatively weak Democratic field, while and her Republican opponents are expected to wage a bloody and bruising Republican contest until the state's late August primary elections.

"I absolutely refused to bow down to Sharia law". Congresswoman Martha McSally is running counter to current Republican Senator Jeff Flake by embracing the agenda set forth by President Donald Trump and his administration. She wasn't done though, also explicitly tying herself to Trump.

Also running in the Republican primary is conservative state Senator Kelli Ward, like Arpaio a strong Trump supporter. The Senate Majority PAC, a liberal group with ties to the Democratic leadership, wasted no time attacking McSally. 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.

"As a member of the wildly unpopular Republican Congress, Mitch McConnell's handpicked candidate Rep. McSally has spent her career as a reliable vote for corporate special interests and Wall Street, not Arizona families", J.B. Poersch, the organization's president, said in a statement.

Naby Keita to Liverpool: Possible shirt numbers for new arrival
That's not going to cut it with the Liverpool fans will are desperately searching for any hint he will arrive in January. Leipzig had initially taken a hard stance to the move, denying that they had any need to sell him.


The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee may have tipped its hand Friday on which candidate it favors, name-dropping Kirkpatrick in a tweet reacting to McSally's announcement.

The victor will face off against likely Democratic opponent Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, who is a strong favorite to win her party's nomination. Her primary challengers include state Sen.

McSally is widely seen as the national party's preferred nominee, much as incumbent Senator Luther Strange was backed by the party's establishment wing in the battle for the Republican nomination in a Senate special election in Alabama against hard-line evangelical Christian conservative Roy Moore. John McCain's memorable - some might say notorious - 2010 television commercial in which the veteran Arizona Republican promises to "Complete the danged fence", McSally is seen walking along a fence while her voiceover promises to secure the border.

"My friend, Martha McSally, she's the real deal".

"The Arizona Republican primary will be nasty, expensive and very long".
