Fighter Pilot Makes Impressive Entrance to Announce She's Running for Senate

Martha McSally (R) will announce Friday that she's running for the Senate seat vacated by retiring Sen.

In announcing her bid, McSally told Washington Republicans in a YouTube video to "grow a set of ovaries" and said that she, like Trump, is exhausted of "PC politicians with their BS excuses", referring to political correctness.

"I absolutely refuse to bow down to Sharia law", McSally says, after a narrator discusses her successful fight against a US military policy that required women to wear head-to-toe garb in Saudi Arabia. McSally also cleverly adapts the ancient conservative injunction to RINOs to "grow a pair" by saying the GOP should "grow a pair of ovaries", presumably like hers.

Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who announced past 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.

The U.S. Air Force Academy graduate's official biography also notes that her squadron was awarded the Air Force Association David C. Schilling Award in 2006 for their work in Afghanistan. Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio, an immigration hardliner, and former state Sen. "She opposed Donald Trump as a candidate and has undermined him as president, which is why leading conservatives are rejecting McSally and are lining up behind a true reformer in Dr. Kelli Ward".

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee may have tipped its hand Friday on which candidate it favors, name-dropping Kirkpatrick in a tweet reacting to McSally's announcement.

"Martha McSally is Jeff Flake 2.0 and part of the Washington establishment that has failed Arizona for years", said Ward campaign chair Ed Rollins.

"She really has no place to raise money anymore", said Chuck Coughlin, a Republican consultant in Phoenix.

McSally, who has always been expected to run and is the preferred candidate of Senate GOP officials, launched her campaign with a slick 83-second video she posted online. John McCain in 2016.

She refused to endorse Trump in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Earlier this week, she was seated near Trump at his hourlong public discussion with congressional Democrats and Republicans of immigration and border-security issues.

She added, "After taking on terrorists in combat, the liberals in the Senate won't scare me one bit".

"Like in almost every other state facing a Senate election this cycle, the Arizona Republican primary will be nasty, expensive and very long", David Bergstein, a Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesman said Friday in a written statement. "It will drain the GOP's resources, demoralize their voters, and expose the flaws in each of their candidates", the statement reads.

McSally was elected to the House in 2014, defeating incumbent U.S. Rep. Ron Barber, D-Ariz., in a close race.

Democrats in the Senate primary include Deedra Abboud, Bob Bishop, Cheryl Fowler, Chris Russell and U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, who is considered the front-runner.
