Rep. Martha McSally Finds Her Inner Trump

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

In an excerpt from her video, she fervently explained, "Like our president, I'm exhausted of PC politicians and their BS excuses".

So the announcement video includes a clip of Trump praising McSally with "my friend", "the real deal" and "she's tough". "That's why I told Washington Republicans to grow a pair of ovaries and get the job done".

The race will test the appeal of the Trump political playbook - which emphasizes the dangers of illegal immigration and demands border security above all else - in a state where almost 1 in 3 residents is Hispanic and roughly 1 million are eligible to vote, according to the Pew Research Center.

McSally is widely seen as the national party's preferred nominee, much as incumbent Senator Luther Strange was backed by the party's establishment wing in the battle for the Republican nomination in a Senate special election in Alabama against hard-line evangelical Christian conservative Roy Moore. "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".

"Martha's got a very good story to tell: A-10 fighter pilot, a female pilot in combat, trying to get immigration reform done", Coughlin said.

McSally is the second notable entrant to the race this week, following Sheriff Joe Arpaio's somewhat surprising Tuesday announcement that he, too, would be entering the primary.

Earlier today, McSally released a video announcing her campaign that emphasized both her military background and her relationship with President Donald Trump.

Yet she has tacked right in recent months and aligned herself with Trump as the 2018 campaign season neared.

McSally also shared a stern rhetoric on immigration that Trump has often made headlines with.

After Trump attacked Democrats for attempting to shut down the government to protect Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, McSally thanked the president. "Our military is relying on us". Trump won Arizona in 2016 by less than 4 points.

Democrats need to pick up two seats this November to wrest control of the U.S. Senate from the Republicans.

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

And though Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell - the epitome of the Republican establishment who is hated by some on the far right - has called her one of his top recruits this election cycle, McSally gives D.C. Republicans a rhetorical pounding in the video. Sharia law is the religious law of Islam but has become a political punching bag for many conservatives. "After taking on terrorists in combat, the Liberals in the Senate won't scare me one bit". But their hopes for an expensive and politically damaging GOP primary appears slightly dashed now that McSally is officially in the race and with Trump.

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

"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.
