VICTORY! Feminist Hero & Republican Candidate Martha McSally Wins Seat in Congress
Martha E. McSally is a pioneer. She is the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat, and first to command a fighter squadron in combat in United States history.
Arizona Republican Congressional candidate Martha McSally was on with Greta Van Susteren in 2012. McSally, the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat, discussed her career with Greta and the real “War on Women” – the brutal Middle Eastern suppression and abuse of women.
This was an excellent interview with a true American patriot.
Martha McSally led by 36 votes after the November 5th election.
Today Republican Martha McSally won her seat in the US Congress.
She won by 167 votes!
The Politico reported:
Republican Martha McSally has prevailed in Arizona’s 2nd Congressional District over Democratic Rep. Ron Barber following a recount after initial vote totals showed McSally ahead by fewer than 200 votes.
Results unveiled Wednesday by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Katherine Cooper — more than six weeks after the Nov. 4 election — showed McSally ahead by 167 votes. McSally, a retired Air Force officer and the first female to fly in combat, previously led the vote count by 161 votes, but a mandatory recount followed because the margin was not wide enough.
“There’s no getting around that this was an incredibly close and hard-fought race,” McSally said in a statement after officially being declared the winner. “After what’s been a long campaign season, it’s time to come together and heal our community. That’s why my focus will be on what unites us, not what divides us, such as providing better economic opportunity for our families and ensuring our country and community are kept safe.”
McSally’s win adds to the GOP’s historic 2014 gains in the House. When the new Congress convenes in January, Republicans will control 247 House seats, compared to 188 for Democrats.
More… With McSally’s win the GOP will now have the largest majority ever, with 247 seats, which has not been seen since the 1929-31 term, when Republicans held 270 seats during President Herbert Hoover’s administration.
