McSally embraces Trump in Arizona Senate bid

Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Jeff Flake's Senate continues to grow as Rep. Martha McSally has officially joined the race.

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

In front of a fighter jet and over the crunch of electric guitar, McSally then declares her common ground with Trump: "Like our president, I'm exhausted of P.C. politicians and their B.S. excuses". "I recently made one myself, and I wanted my friends in Tucson to be the first to know". 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. She retired in 2010 as a full-bird colonel. "That's just not how leaders carry themselves", she said at the time.

But in a sign of how thoroughly Trump now dominates her party, McSally has been snuggling up to the 45th president in preparation for her Senate run. Over the past month, McSally has sent out photos of herself with the president and with first daughter Ivanka Trump....

It's hardly the first time the former sheriff ― who was a year ago convicted of misdemeanor for defying an order to stop racially profiling Latinos ― has claimed Obama's birth certificate is fake.

Scientists criticise trend for raw meat pet food after analysis finds pathogens
Pet owners who are interested in raw meat-based diets should talk to a professional rather than feeding their pets uncooked meat. Four products (11%) contained the parasite Sarcocystis cruzi and four contained Sarcocystis tenella.

On Twitter on Friday, McSally thanked Trump for attacking Democrats who are contemplating a government shutdown to protect young immigrants known as "Dreamers". Trump won Arizona in 2016 by less than 4 percentage points. The primary also includes former state Sen.

"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 for American servicewomen".

Democrats, meanwhile, are practically giddy about what they view as a race to the right in the Republican field that could make it hard for the primary victor to prevail in November.

The primary is not until August 28.
