Rep. Martha McSally Finds Her Inner Trump

Rep. Martha McSally Finds Her Inner Trump

Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) announced Friday morning that she will run for the Senate seat incumbent Sen.

And the two-term congresswoman is already showing she's got more, er, goods than the hand-wringing anti-Trump RINO now occupying the seat ever dreamed of having. Kelli Ward and notorious former Maricopa County, Ariz.

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".

"After taking on terrorists in combat, the liberals in the Senate won't scare me one bit", McSally said in the video released hours before she piloted herself to campaign events across the state in a World War Two-era plane. 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 (R-Ariz.) served 26 years in the Air Force and retired as a colonel in 2010. "He's one of the most honorable men I've ever known".

The video features a snippet of President Trump praising McSally in a Rose Garden ceremony, and McSally mentioning that, like the president, she's exhausted of politically correct politicians and their "B.S." excuses. She wasn't done though, also explicitly tying herself to Trump.

McSally is the early establishment favorite in the contest, even if she has recently adopted the same anti-establishment message that fueled Trump's political rise in 2016.

Kerber beats Barty to win Sydney title
Her Sydney campaign is strong preparation for next week's Australian Open in Melbourne, where she opens against world number 69 Aryna Sabalenka.

She refused to endorse in the 2016 presidential campaign.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee also put out a statement attacking the entire Republican primary field. "That's just not how leaders carry themselves", she said at the time.

McSally avoided her Republican opponents altogether on Friday, focusing instead on her military service while adding a jab at Sharia law - a reference to her fight against a military policy that required female soldiers in some Muslim-majority countries to wear robes over their service uniforms. Sharia law is the religious law of Islam but has become a political punching bag for many conservatives.

McSally acknowledged she has some challenges in the state when it comes to name recognition but pointed out she was named the ninth most-effective member of Congress during her freshman term by the Center for Effective Lawmaking, based on getting bills introduced and passed.

McSally, 51, kicked off campaigning with an appearance Friday at an air hangar in her hometown of Tucson, followed by stops at a hangar in Phoenix and at the Yavapai County Courthouse in Prescott.

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.

The Arizona Democratic Party highlighted what spokesman Drew Anderson called a "long, brutal and expensive" Republican civil war.
