A Conversation with Martha McSally
American Thinker ^ | April 23, 2014 | Elise Cooper

Posted on 04/24/2014 4:06:33 PM PDT by dontreadthis

Retired Air Force Colonel Martha McSally (R-AZ) is running against Ron Barber for the seat formerly held by Gabby Giffords. Colonel McSally was part of the team that helped plan and execute the U.S. air operations over Afghanistan shortly after 9/11. She also, in January 1995, became the first woman in U.S. history to fly a combat aircraft into enemy territory, in order to help enforce the United Nations' "no-fly zone." In July 2004, McSally took command of the 354th Fighter Squadron, becoming the first woman in U.S. history to command a combat aviation unit. She stood up for American principles after initiating a lawsuit in early 2002, which eventually led Congress to pass a bill which stated women in the U.S. military would not be required to wear any Muslim clothing. Col. McSally made sure that as part of the law, all U.S. servicewomen deployed in Saudi Arabia were given a copy of the legislation.

****************************************************************

I’m not sure what “place” you think is “full of leftist morons”. Anyhow, I donated to McSally’s campaign in 2012 and will do so again this year. Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District needs to rid itself of the duplicitous and lying DimocRAT currently holding the seat.

Barber is just old news.

He’s a 60’s lib with nothing except worn out platitudes. McSally needs to clean up her presentation and cast herself as a fresh face.

Barber has signed the Pelosi-Garcia amnesty bill with all Democrats in AZ.

“The most recent roster was just released with the NRCC announcing that 17 of those on the original list have been promoted to ‘Contender’ status. Only one Arizona Congressional candidate —- Martha McSally —- has been advanced to the next tier.”

“Andy Tobin’s predicament might be tied to the fact that the “specific goals” he’s been working on aren’t in the district he‘s campaigning from, or even the state of Arizona. Tobin is busy focusing his attention on Mexico. “

Kwasman is the conservative for AZ01. The unknown cowboy Kiehne may be spoiling for Tobin.
