It’s a shame that Kelly didn’t beat Giffords in 2010 when he had the wind in his back; his largish loss to Barber in Tuesday’s special election is a sure sign that he would have an extremely difficult time winning the regular general election this November in a redrawn district that is 2% less Republican than the current one.
Yes, Martha McSally can win this race, and I agree that she could become a star in Congress.
A star for what? Gender quotas for assignments and promotions? Putting women into combat? Relaxing training standards to accomodate females?
