Martha McSally launches Senate bid, leaves wide open race for Tucson's CD2

Martha McSally launches Senate bid, leaves wide open race for Tucson's CD2

John McCain. But U.S. Rep. Martha McSally, who represents the Tucson area, has reportedly told colleagues that she will run for Flake's seat. Lane FlakeGOP strategist donates to Alabama Democrat Sasse: RNC help for Roy Moore "doesn't make any sense" Sasse calls RNC decision to resume support for Moore "bad" and "sad" MORE (R-Ariz.). She played up her career as the first woman Air Force combat pilot.

McSally is the second notable entrant to the race this week, following Sheriff Joe Arpaio's somewhat surprising Tuesday announcement that he, too, would be entering the primary.

"Like our president, I'm exhausted of P.C. politicians and their B.S. excuses", McSally says after the video of Trump's comments. "I'm a fighter pilot and I talk like one - that's why I told Washington Republicans to grow a pair of ovaries and get the job done", she said in the video. These next 10 months, I'm going to "fly, fight and win", McSally said. Both Arpaio and Ward are considered border-security hardliners. Kelli Ward, a vocal Trump advocate, are also GOP candidates.

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.

The Ward campaign isn't buying it, though. Dems demand Tillerson end State hiring freeze, consult with Congress MORE (R-Ariz.) and had been working to fashion herself the choice for Arizona's more conservative voters in this election.

McSally, a retired Air Force colonel, made the announcement in a YouTube video that highlighted her military experience and conservative credentials. "After eight years of fighting, I won my battle for the religious freedom of American servicewomen".

Fired-up Brady on mission as Patriots prepare to take on Titans
This contest screams of a game dominated by Rob Gronkowski , who eats up the middle of the field against mediocre linebackers. In those games against Kansas City, Carolina and Miami, the Patriots allowed 11 trips to the red zone - and eight touchdowns.

John Kasich (R) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) began their New York Times op-ed on President Trump and immigration by recapping the tale of Elián Gonzalez, the young Cuban boy who made it to Florida in 1999 and then, when USA courts ruled he had to return, was "pulled from the arms of a sheltering adult by a team of heavily armed federal agents", a scene "seared in the minds of many people as a low point in the immigration debate".

All three candidates will likely try to leverage their ties to Trump to their benefit.

McSally, R-Ariz., was the first USA female combat pilot, and her campaign video tells how she battled the Pentagon to overturn a policy that required US servicewomen in Saudi Arabia to wear Muslim abayas and headscarves.

Whoever wins the race is expected to face Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., who has the backing of many national Democrats and has over $5.1 million in her campaign war chest, according to a release from her campaign sent out Thursday.

Earlier this week, United States Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen applauded McSally and other members of the House Homeland Security Committee Border and Maritime Security subcommittee for introducing a bill that would provide a solution to keeping the DACA program alive, but would also reduce visa overstays and threatens to punish sanctuary cities.

"I speak a little salty behind closed doors at times as well, so I'm not going to throw the first stone on using any language", McSally said.
