Maggie’s List Proudly Endorses
Martha McSally for U.S Senate
A Veteran and a Leader Ready to Take on the Senate
(Washington, D.C) - Maggie’s List, a federal political action committee dedicated to electing conservative women to office, is proud to announce the endorsement of Martha McSally for U.S Senate. Martha was elected to Congress in 2014.
Martha McSally has an impressive record of getting things done. During her time serving the individuals of AZ-02, Martha has passed nine bills and has gotten two signed into law. As a Senator, Martha will continue to put the citizens of Arizona first. Martha has been working with President Trump on the important issues including health care, immigration and the budget. She votes with President Trump more than any other member of the Arizona delegation.
“Martha McSally has been a part of Maggie’s List since the beginning,” states Sandra B. Mortham, Chairman of Maggie’s List and former Florida Secretary of State. “We know from first-hand experience that Martha is the right candidate to represent Arizona in Washington because she respects the need for increased personal responsibility, fiscal conservatism, and a strong national security.”
Before serving in Congress, Martha served in the U.S Airforce. She retired as a full colonel. Martha was the first female fighter pilot in United States history. Martha has two master’s degrees, including one from Harvard. She is very involved in the Tucson community. Martha served as a board member of Teen Challenge of Arizona, an internationally renowned faith-based addiction recovery program. Additionally, Martha served as Commissioner on the Pima County/Tucson Women’s Commission.
“We have been pushing Martha to run for Senate through social media campaigns for a while and we are thrilled she has finally taken the next step. Martha epitomizes the Maggie’s List values and I cannot wait to see her lead and get things done in the Senate,” states Sandra B. Mortham.
“Martha McSally speaks for Arizonans. On health care, border security, reducing the size of government and tax reform, Martha has been at the table and has been effective. Her lifetime of service in the military, in her community and in the House has prepared her for US Senate,” states Maggie’s List Arizona State Chair, Lisa James.
Women currently hold only 21 seats in the U.S Senate, according to the CAWP. Currently five of the 21 women serving as U.S Senators are fiscal conservatives. This abysmal number is something that Maggie’s List works to correct by helping to elect fiscally conservative women to the U.S. House, Senate and state-wide offices.
