I find the political TV advertisement for Rep. Martha McSally to be unsettling in a generally unusual election year. She is pictured in a flight suit telling us how she will stop ISIS terrorists and others crossing our southern border, to protect America. Yet the candidate of her party for president, through many covert international business relationships, could be the greatest threat to security the United States and the world has ever seen.

Regarding safety closer to home, she has ignored the pending bill to fund Zika virus prevention/research and voted not fund women’s health issues. Congress just returned to Washington from a seven-week summer vacation, to work a week and then take time off to campaign. The ad implores us as voters to “deploy her to Washington.” To do what?
