McSally Announces She's Running For Arizona Senate Seat

Arizona Congresswoman Martha McSally is launching her bid for the U.S. Senate on Friday.

But McSally's toughest test could come from former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a Republican who announced Tuesday that he was in the race. One of her primary opponents, outspoken Trump backer Kelli Ward, was quick to call McSally "a pretender" on Friday.

Later today, McSally, a retired Air Force colonel and the first female fighter pilot to fly a combat mission, plans to fly herself across Arizona in a World War II fighter plane to announce her candidacy in Tucson, Phoenix and Prescott.

"I told Washington Republicans to grow a pair of ovaries and get the job done", she says in the video, where she admits to "talking like a fighter pilot".

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

"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.

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

"As a member of the wildly unpopular Republican Congress, Mitch McConnell's handpicked candidate Rep. McSally has spent her career as a reliable vote for corporate special interests and Wall Street, not Arizona families", J.B. Poersch, the organization's president, said in a statement.

The Republican field for Arizona Sen.

On Twitter on Friday, McSally thanked Trump for attacking Democrats who are contemplating a government shutdown to protect young immigrants known as "Dreamers". If elected, McSally said she'd be Trump's wingman in the Senate.

She wore a flight suit, her uniform from her days as the country's first female combat pilot, and she spoke about her record of fighting the Department of Defense over the clothes women in the military were forced to wear in restrictive countries practicing Sharia law. "I guess there is a dispute as to what was actually said", she said. The primary also includes former state Sen.
