Martha McSally launches Senate campaign in heated GOP race

BREAKING: Martha McSally launches Senate campaign in heated GOP race

Since Flake's surprise retirement announcement, McSally has sought to raise her profile by piling up appearances on Fox News and has posted on social media pictures of herself with Trump, whom she avoided discussing throughout the 2016 elections and for months more after he entered the White House. In 1993 McSally became the first female combat pilot to fly in hostile territory when she underwent a mission to enforce the no-fly zone in Iraq.

Considering Arizona sits on America's southern border with Mexico, the election will undoubtedly be highlighted by candidate views on immigration from both sides of the political spectrum in a state that features one of the country's highest concentration of Hispanic populations.

But while McSally is trying to tie herself to the president now, she refused to endorse his presidential bid, ammunition that her opponents might use to launch their own attacks on the campaign trail. "Now, I am running for the Senate to fight the fights that must be won".

"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.

"I'm a fighter pilot and I talk like one", McSally says in her announcement video.

If McSally manages to beat Arpaio and Ward for the Republican Senate nomination, she is expected to face U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., the Democratic primary front-runner.

She co-sponsored an immigration plan considered a conservative wish list of sorts 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. Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, an immigration hardliner, and former state Sen.

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 USA can bring here. She co-sponsored an immigration bill that would reduce legal immigration levels by 25 percent earlier this week.

"It does not matter what we say about education, jobs or the economy", the RNC wrote, "if Hispanics think we do not want them here, they will close their ears to our policies". It is one of Senate Democrats' few pickup opportunities this year as they try to seize back the majority.

"I absolutely refused to bow down to Sharia law", she said.

The Republican field for Arizona Sen. "After eight years of fighting, I won my battle for the religious freedom of American servicewomen".

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