I love Southern Arizona. My service to our country brought me here and I am proud to have made it my home. I am running for Congress because I believe our community needs a stronger voice advocating for us in Washington D.C. Our nation is at a critical juncture. We need leaders who are able to work toward solutions, not partisan politicians who are looking out for their next re-election.
Please invest a few minutes of your time to get to know me and this race. I invite you to become a part of the team. Together, we can make Southern Arizona a better place to live, work and raise our families.
In Arizona, Republican Martha McSally is putting her military service at the forefront of her second congressional campaign and emphasizing what she calls the Air Force’s core values.
“Service before self, integrity and excellence in all we do,” says McSally, the first woman in U.S. history to command a fighter squadron in combat. “And those are the character traits that are sorely lacking” in Washington.
The United States is facing a failure of leadership now, more so than at any other time in the nation’s history, said Republican congressional hopeful Martha McSally. “America is in decline,” she told nearly 40 people at a Wednesday Southeastern Arizona Contractors Association luncheon. But it doesn’t mean the decline can’t be reversed, because it can be with the elections of the right people, McSally said.
Tucson Republican Martha McSally bested U.S. Rep. Ron Barber, D-Ariz., in the latest round of fundraising, outstripping him and every other congressional candidate in Arizona from July through September…McSally’s dramatic opening suggests she would have adequate funding for a hard-knuckle rematch with Barber, who beat her last year by a paper-thin margin to win the southern Arizona district.
Barber’s re-election in 2012 was surprisingly close, and the former congressional aide will once again face retired Air Force Col. Martha McSally next year. Democrats privately worry about Barber’s ability to win without presidential-year turnout — or lots of national dollars — behind him.
They’re talented, they’re diverse, and they have almost nothing to do with the mess in Washington. Patricia Murphy on nine women breathing new life into the GOP.
When American troops find themselves in precarious positions on the battlefield, there is no better sound than the rumbling engines of an A-10 bringing its 30 mm gun to bear. Pumping out up to 1,174 rounds with incredible accuracy, it can literally mean the difference between life and death for troops who are pinned down.
