McSally Announces She's Running For Arizona Senate Seat

Rep. Martha McSally speaks at a rally, Friday, Jan. 12, 2018, in Tucson, Ariz.

It seems the main significance she now ascribes to that accomplishment is as a testament to her toughness - you know, the kind of toughness her new friend the president of the United States displays in taking on "PC politicians and their BS excuses". As she launched her bid, the 2nd District Arizona lawmaker called for the national Republican Party to, "grow a pair of ovaries", among what will be one of the most watched Senate races in the country. She wasn't done though, also explicitly tying herself to Trump. "It's a time of big and defining choices", McSally told the crowd after she'd safely landed. The Arizona election will showcase the explosive feud between the Republican Party's establishment and its hardline anti-immigration wing - all in a border state that features the nation's fourth largest Hispanic population.

Trump can be seen in McSally's announcement video praising her as "the real deal" and "tough".

McSally, who served 26 years in the US military, also used her experience to hit out at the Democrats in the Senate in the video, saying, "after taking on terrorists in combat, the liberals in the Senate won't scare me one bit".

The election will test the appeal of the Trump political playbook - which emphasizes the dangers of illegal immigration and demands border security above all else - in a state where almost 1 in 3 residents is Hispanic and roughly 1 million are eligible to vote, according to the Pew Research Center. won Arizona in 2016 by less than 4 points.

McSally is running off the platform that, right now, only she - and not her Republican rivals Kelli Ward and Joe Arpaio - are actually in office attempting to pass legislation. Another high-profile candidate, Ward, was an early favorite of former Trump adviser Steve Bannon.

X-factors for Patriots against Titans
Jones said he practices each week as though his role will go beyond special teams. "I'm not really looking at it like that". It's a big task to go out and win a playoff game and play against a good team, divisional round.

Flake, who did not support Trump throughout his 2016 presidential campaign and has continued to disagree with the president on just about every issue announced Tuesday that he is not willing to take the path necessary to winning a republican nomination. "We won't play politics w/America's safety & military funding".

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. The bill, which is unlikely to survive the -controlled Senate, also provides temporary legal status for young immigrants enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee also put out a statement attacking the entire Republican primary field. In his election, President Trump won the state by less than four points.

U.S. Rep. Martha McSally, a two-term Arizona Republican and former Air Force combat pilot, on Friday, an already volatile race for Arizona's open U.S. Senate seat.

"I absolutely refused to bow down to Sharia law", she said in the video referencing her successful challenge to a military policy that required her to wear an Islamic robe over her Air Force uniform. But now she says she was "standing up to Sharia law", a cause beloved of Muslim-hating Christian conservatives. "After eight years of fighting, I won my battle for the religious freedom of American servicewomen".
