Rep. Martha McSally Finds Her Inner Trump

"Like our president, I'm exhausted of PC politicians and their BS excuses", McSally said in her hard-hitting announcement video, released Friday, that also highlighted her career as an Air Force fighter pilot and her eight-year fight to end a military policy requiring female soldiers in certain Muslim-majority countries to wear robes over their military uniforms. Both candidates join former state Senator Kelli Ward, who has been in the race since October.

"I'm a fighter pilot and I talk like one", she says. Jeff Flake quit his re-election campaign because he had lost so much support from the Republican base after criticizing Trump.

So the announcement video includes a clip of Trump praising McSally with "my friend", "the real deal" and "she's tough".

"McSally never endorsed Trump in 2016, and she called his comments about sexual assault "disgusting" and 'unacceptable.' McSally was also caught on tape this summer telling donors that Trump's behavior and Twitter habit made her life more hard".

Martha McSally Tries To Hold Off Kelli Ward and Joe Arpaio But as she is entering a primary against two people more consistently supportive of Trump, Kelli Ward and Joe Arpaio, McSally's political consultants clearly don't want her getting "Flaked".

The plane honors a connection to the female pilots who trained in World War II and delivered warplanes to combat assignments.

McSally promises to back President Trump on judicial appointments and reversing Obama executive orders. This is unconstitutional, she says, because military men are not required to dress like local men.

I think there is that mutual respect, which is unbelievable to get respect from such a champion like Angie". Unfortunately the double fault she did hit was when trying to stave off a break point in the opening set.

Thompson acquired 2,100 shares of the company's stock in a transaction that occurred on Wednesday, November 23rd. Federal Realty Investment Trust (NYSE: FRT ) has declined 16.62% since January 13, 2017 and is downtrending.

"As we discussed on Tuesday, we won't allow our troops to be held hostage by DACA negotiations".

She also co-sponsored an immigration plan released by House conservatives this week that would reduce legal immigration levels by 25 percent, block federal grants to sanctuary cities and restrict the number of relatives that immigrants already in the USA can bring here. "Our military is relying on us", McSally wrote, using an acronym for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The bill, which is unlikely to survive the GOP-controlled Senate, also provides temporary legal status for young immigrants enrolled in DACA.

But she has also voted with Trump, a fellow Republican, almost 97 percent of the time.

Democrats see Arizona as a rare opportunity to pick up a Senate seat in 2018.

But McSally makes a clear attempt to appeal to the party's right flank in her video, immediately reminding voters about her successful challenge to military rules that mandated women wear an Islamic robe over their uniform while in some Muslim countries. "I guess there is a dispute as to what was actually said", she said. "After eight years of fighting, I won my battle for the religious freedom of American servicewomen", she said.

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.

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.
