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

Martha Mc Sally, flanked by Senator John Cornyn and Senator Dick Durbin, speaks as U.S. President Donald Trump holds a bipartisan meeting with legislators on immigration reform at the White House in Was Trump holds a bipartisan meeting with legislators on immigration reform at the White House in Washington Thomson Reuters

"I'm a fighter pilot, and I talk like one", McSally says in her announcement video. The 51-year-old McSally will compete with none other than former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, 85, an immigration hard-liner with legendary status in the state, and pro-Trump former State Senator Kelli Ward, both of whom will try to paint McSally tough on talk but weak on delivery. 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. They turned me into a fighter pilot. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who announced previous year that he is not seeking re-election, is seen as key to Republican hopes of holding on to their slim 51-49 majority in the U.S. Senate.

She doesn't even mind if Trump described Haiti and other African nations with vulgar language earlier in the week.

John McCain's memorable - some might say notorious - 2010 television commercial in which the veteran Arizona Republican promises to "Complete the danged fence", McSally is seen walking along a fence while her voiceover promises to secure the border.

You'd figure that with two primary opponents from the mad fringe of the Republican Party, Congresswoman Martha McSally might want to exploit her reputation for being something of a moderate.

McSally, a retired Air Force colonel, will fly herself across the state announcing her candidacy in Prescott, Phoenix, and Tucson.

Ward, who has been backed by former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, has framed her campaign as an extension of Trump's "America First agenda", although that could be more hard now that Trump is feuding with Bannon.

The 2018 Arizona Senate election will most likely mirror the 2016 presidential election and Donald Trump's political playbook, emphasizing the threat Americans face from illegal immigration.

The primary is expected to become a contest over which candidate is most loyal to President Donald Trump and who is toughest on border security.

Jake Livermore: West Ham to investigate West Brom midfielder's altercation with fans
They found it harder to stop the attacks and Manuel Lanzini slid a pass through to Arnautovic who should have won the game. As such it's vital we don't slip up early, and I think the West Brom goal was avoidable.

On Twitter on Friday, McSally thanked Trump for attacking Democrats who are contemplating a government shutdown to protect young immigrants known as "Dreamers". I also made this clear: we won't let the Dems hold our troops hostage in negotiations over DACA.

McSally 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 US can bring here. "We won't play politics w/America's safety & military funding".

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

The Arizona race is seen by Republican and Democratic operatives as a key battleground in the competition for the Senate majority.

"I absolutely refused to bow down to sharia law", she says.

The primary race won't be easy.

Now McSally has to fly over a field of other Republican candidates to earn the party's nomination, then win over voters for the general election.

"Whoever escapes the GOP primary in August, they will be held accountable for touting their radical stripes at every opportunity and willingness to take stances on issues that are simply out of touch with Arizonan voters", state Democratic Party spokesman Drew Anderson said.
