BARBER: REPUBLICANS "A BUNCH OF WHITE GUYS"
Categorizes all Republicans with ultra partisan remarks
Tucson - Today, Martha McSally responded to Ron Barber's remarks that categorized Republicans as a "bunch of white guys" who represent "big money" in a recent interview with the Arizona Daily Star.
"It's sad," said McSally, "Ron Barber's comments reflect the tone of Washington politicians, where name calling has become sport. Name calling and stereotypes never created a job or helped a struggling family."
In an editorial board meeting with the Arizona Daily Star on Tuesday, Barber said,
"The Democratic side of the House is a rainbow of colors and ethnicities and religious beliefs." "Quite frankly, on the other side, it's essentially a bunch of white guys." That's because the people sent to represent Republicans are typically the 'big money' people in the country, he said.
"This is exactly what is wrong with Washington," said McSally Campaign Manager Bruce Harvie. "Ron Barber is incapable of providing real leadership or solutions, so he just hurls partisan attacks at Republicans. No wonder he has been so ineffective in Washington."
Martha McSally is the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat, and first to command a fighter squadron in combat in United States history. In 2001-2002, Martha McSally earned national recognition for successfully challenging and overturning a military policy requiring all U.S. servicewomen to wear Muslim clothing when off base in Saudi Arabia.
