Congressional District 2 Republican candidate Martha McSally has a new ad up today, titled " Working for US."

The one minute ad offers several testimonials for locals supporting her, including a neighbor and a fellow veteran.

"Southern Arizonans know Martha is running for office because serving others is a core part of who she is," said McSally Campaign Spokesman Patrick Ptak. "That's why they're willing to come forward and talk about how she's helped them in their own lives. They know Martha will work for us, not Washington."

Federal Communications Commission records state the campaign will spend at least $46,000 on the new ad, which will be broadcasted on local network stations over the next week.

Text of the ad:

(Jamie [no last name given], speaking)

“Martha is the most determined, trustworthy, loyal person I know.”

(Jeree [no last name given], speaking)

“She really wants to do right by everyone.”

(Helene [no last name given], speaking)

“When the job I had for nine years up and left the country, Martha helped me.”

(Jamie, speaking)

“It is a struggle day to day to make sure I can provide for my kid and I know that Martha is going to be able to bring in the business that we need to keep the jobs."

(Josh [no last name given,] speaking)

“She understands how to relate to people, how to connect with people.”

(Martha McSally, speaking)

“I am running for Congress because I don’t walk by a problem. I have a fire in my belly to make a difference and when things are broken, I want to fix them."

(Stacey [no last name given,] speaking)

“When I was diagnosed with Leukemia , she stopped what she was doing and then she was beside me the whole way."

(McSally, speaking)

"Service means helping others. Service means doing what is best for others instead of what is best for yourself. And we need servant leadership in Washington D.C. more than ever.

I am Martha McSally and I approve this message because together we can make a difference. "
