Rep. Martha McSally released a 93-second ad on YouTube to kick off her Senate campaign this morning.

The ad touts her fight with the Department of Defense over the wearing of Muslim robes while serving in Saudi Arabia, protecting A-10 and her priorities if elected to the Senate. 

McSally enters a crowded field of Republicans vying to replace Senator Jeff Flake, including former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and former state Sen. Kelli Ward.

Text of the 30 second ad:


"26 years in uniform. She's take the fight to the enemy and the establishment."

Leslie Stahl (from a 2002 60 minutes segment):

"The US Air Force decided that Martha McSally had the right stuff, the first female pilot to fly in combat. Colonel McSally is not afraid of a good fight. She has launched a one-woman campaign against a military policy in Saudi Arabia that forced her to wear a long black Islamic robe over her Air Force uniform."


"I absolutely refuse to bow down to Sharia law. After eight years of fighting, I won my battle for the religious freedom for American servicewomen."

Now I've deployed to DC to fight for Arizona - supporting our troops and saving the A-10. protecting Arizona jobs and securing the border.

President Donald Trump, during a rally (date, place unknown.)

"My friend, Martha McSally. She is the real deal, she is tough."


"Like our president, I am tired of PC politicians and their BS excuses. I am a fighter pilot and I talk like one. That's why I told Washington Republicans to grow a pair of ovaries and get the job done.

Now I am running for Senate. To fight the fights that must be won. On national security, economic security and border security. After taking on terrorists in combat, the Liberals in the Senate won't scare me one bit."


"Patriot. Warrior. Leader. Martha McSally for United States Senate."
