"A brave former fighter jet pilot and warrior, Senator Martha McSally of Arizona has done an outstanding job in D.C., and is fully supportive of our agenda – she is with us all the way. Martha is strong on Crime and Borders, the 2nd Amendment, and loves our Military and Vets. She has my Complete and Total Endorsement!" ~ President Trump - June 25, 2019
Any candidate ENDORSED by President Trump receives 100% support and promotional efforts! The Campaign Corner trusts President Trump's decisions and will not promote any contender against the candidate our President wants to win.
*Martha's rating was upgraded on May 5, 2020 from 3.5 stars to 4 due to significantly higher support on her part of the MAGA agenda. Her vote record is at 95% in line with President Trump.
Senator Martha McSally served in the Air Force for 26 years and was the first female fighter pilot and the first to command a fighter squadron. Her sponsored legislation includes 3 bipartisan bills on detecting and deterring illegal entry into the USA, transparency for prescription drug cost and reining in rogue spending at western area power administration. Martha lost her Senate race for the open seat against Krysten Sinema, but was then appointed to temporarily fill the seat vacated by McCain. Her appointment by Governor Doug Ducey (R) was challenged in court because no special election was slated.
Martha votes in line with President Trump about 85% of the time , and faces reelection in 2020 in order to remain in the seat for the remaining time left, through 2022. McSally votes in opposition of the President on most foreign policy. She was supported and endorsed by him in 2018 but needs to improve her efforts in returning that support. Let's hope that in the coming months Senator McSally will demonstrate more loyalty for President Trump, especially since she received his very early endorsement for 2020 in June of 2019!
On the Democrat side, Mark Kelly, retired astronaut and Navy Vet is running. Mark is the husband of former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords who miraculously lived after being shot in the head in 2011. Kelly has raised many millions more than McSally for the 2020 race. As of May 2020, Mark has $31 million compared to Martha who has $18 million. Mark has spent 11 mil and Marth 9 mil.
Daniel McCarthy (R) - Daniel is 100% MAGA and has raised a significant amount of money at over 235K. However, President Trump has endorsed Martha McSally, and since Campaign Corner supports President Trump 100%, we will not go against his choice.
