Martha McSally, Arizona Congresswoman Tells Republicans To Grow 'Pair Of Ovaries'

Share

Congresswoman Martha McSally is running counter to current Republican Senator Jeff Flake by embracing the agenda set forth by President Donald Trump and his administration.

McSally, a retired Air Force colonel who was the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat, officially launched her campaign in Tucson by flying in on a World War II-era fighter plane. "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.

Furthermore, in the video, McSally left no doubt about her alliance with the president by including a picture of herself with Trump, as well as, a video clip of the president calling her "tough".

"I absolutely refuse to bow down to Sharia law", McSally says, after a narrator discusses her successful fight against a USA military policy that required women to wear head-to-toe garb in Saudi Arabia. In a highly-spirited announcement video, in which she described her plan for fighting for national security, economic security, and border security, President Trump commented on her charisma saying, "My friend, Martha McSally, she's the real deal - she's tough".

"Like our president, I'm exhausted of PC politicians and their BS excuses", she says on the video.

McSally is seen by many as the more establishment alternative to both Arpaio and Ward, who have built up a following among the more conservative segments of the GOP primary field.

But McSally's video seeks to reassure GOP primary voters that she is in the president's corner, too. She's a member of the Republican Main Street Partnership, the political home for moderately conservative officeholders. A third candidate in the Republican primary is former State Senator Kelli Ward, an avid Trump supporter who has advocated for one of the president's campaign promises - a border wall with Mexico.

Yet she has tacked right in recent months and aligned herself with Trump as the 2018 campaign season neared. "We won't play politics w/America's safety & military funding".

Rep. Martha McSally speaks at a rally, Friday, Jan. 12, 2018, in Tucson, Ariz. The bill, which is unlikely to survive the GOP-controlled Senate, also provides temporary legal status for young immigrants enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program. It is one of Senate Democrats' few pickup opportunities this year as they try to seize back the majority. Trump won Arizona in 2016 by less than 4 percentage points.

Janet Buckner, a Democrat representing Aurorea. "It's up to Congress, it's up to everyday people to take action". Washington, a state senator at the time, began pushing for a state holiday soon after King's 1968 assassination.

"I absolutely refused to bow down to Sharia Law", McSally says in the video.

The victor will face off against likely Democratic opponent Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, who is a strong favorite to win her party's nomination.

The success of her message will help determine whether it's finally time for Republican candidates to heed party leaders who warned six years ago that candidates must soften their tone on immigration and do far more to connect with Hispanic voters and other minorities.
