Support Pours in for McSally After Special Election
Tucson - In just 18 days Martha McSally raised over $141,000 for her campaign in Arizona's new 2nd Congressional District. 

McSally's Federal Election Commission (FEC) 2nd Quarter Report will show that Martha raised a total of $146,335 from 249 individual donors with $141,445 coming in after the Special General Election in the 8th Congressional District. She stands currently with $134,425.91 Cash on Hand.

"The people of Arizona are hungry for real leadership and a positive direction for our country," said Martha McSally. "It is so very humbling to receive the gift of time and treasure from so many individuals who want things to change in Washington. I took an oath to protect this country while in the Air Force and I promise that when I get to Washington I will vote to repeal Obamacare and replace it with solutions that will bring the cost of health care down without costing jobs or increasing our national debt. I will also get our debt and spending under control and will work tirelessly to get government off the backs of small business owners so they can continue to build jobs. The people of Southern Arizona will know where I stand on issues and I will listen and dialogue with all voters to solve the complex problems we face together in this country. These are serious times and the country needs solutions, trust and integrity. I intend to bring those all to Congress."

Martha 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. In 2001, Martha earned national recognition for successfully overturning a military policy requiring all U.S. servicewomen to wear a Muslim Abaya and headscarf when off base in Saudi Arabia. Martha's first run for office was in Arizona's 8th Congressional District Special Primary Election where, in 68 days, Martha came in 2nd with 25% of the vote while receiving more votes on Election Day than any other Republican candidate. Martha announced her intention to run in the 2nd District on June 16th. 

Senator Jon Kyl called Martha a "principled, strong, conservative woman ready to step up and provide fresh leadership..." and Congressman Trent Franks called Martha "the exact kind of principled fighter we need in Congress."

Martha's campaign is gearing up for the new 2nd Congressional District. If you would like to join the team, visit her website and don't forget to follow her on Twitter and Facebook.
