McSally launches Senate campaign in heated Arizona contest – Minneapolis Star Tribune

TUCSON, Ariz. — Republican U.S. Rep. Martha McSally called on the national GOP to “grow a pair of ovaries” as she launched her Senate bid Friday, joining the race to replace retiring GOP Sen. Jeff Flake by embracing President Donald Trump and his outsider playbook in one of the nation’s premier contests.

Like few others, the Arizona election is expected to showcase the feud between the Republican Party’s establishment and its fiery anti-immigration wing in particular — all in a border state that features one of the nation’s largest Hispanic populations.

McSally, a two-term congresswoman already backed by many GOP leaders in Arizona and Washington, announced her candidacy in a fiery video that touched on border security and Sharia law and featured Trump himself.
