Rep. Martha McSally Finds Her Inner Trump

Arpaio is a sheriff known for his hardline and controversial border-security policies, as well as his ardent belief that former President Obama forged his birth certificate. "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".

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.

Democrats view the Arizona race as a strong opportunity to pick up a seat in their efforts to win back the Senate majority as incumbent Senator Jeff Flake is retiring at the end of the year.

In announcing her bid, McSally told Washington Republicans in a YouTube video to "grow a set of ovaries" and said that she, like Trump, is exhausted of "PC politicians with their BS excuses", referring to political correctness.

Securing the USA border and figuring out how to normalize the status of "the 10 million to 15 million undocumented immigrants" already here - "who, let's be honest, will not and should not be forcibly removed" - are the two biggest challenges, they add, and "when prioritizing the immigration problems we face, the case of 200,000 Salvadorans who accepted our invitation to live and work here legally would not even make a Top 10 list". Her comments came amid a series of public appearances and social media posts as she trekked across the state flying a World War II-era fighter plane. Some Republicans privately worry that a potentially divisive, lengthy campaign could leave the eventual GOP nominee politically bruised and make it more hard for that person to reach out to centrist voters in the general election. She reportedly told congressional colleagues last fall that she planned to make the bid after Flake announced in October that he wouldn't run for re-election.

Ward unsuccessfully launched a primary campaign in 2016 against Sen. Trump has not endorsed a candidate in the race. "How much daylight is she going to put between herself and the president?"

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

The Arizona Democratic Party highlighted what spokesman Drew Anderson called a "long, brutal and expensive" Republican civil war. If elected, McSally said she'd be Trump's wingman in the Senate.

Along with Arpaio, Ward and McSally in the race are Craig Brittain and Nicholas Tutura. Nor would she say whether her political party should do anything to improve its standing among Hispanic voters. But her party fight to maintain control of the Senate in 2018, the 51-year-old former fighter pilot is betting big that she needs Trump's most passionate supporters on her side if she's to keep outgoing Sen. "She can sort of let Arpaio and Ward fight it out for conservatives, and she comes across as conservative but pretty reasonable". "But how do you get that narrative out there in the cacophony that Joe creates when he talks?"
