Martha McSally Just Landed Another Big Endorsement

Arizona Congresswoman Martha McSally, who is in a battle for the Senate against far left activist Kyrsten Sinema, just landed another major endorsement in the final days of her campaign. 

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is officially backing McSally's candidacy. 

“I am proud to endorse Martha McSally for the United States Senate," Rice released in a statement Friday night. “In my experiences in and out of government, I find the most effective leaders are those with a clear commitment to public service and an ability to inspire others. Martha is one such woman. From her time as a combat pilot through her work in Congress, Martha has always pushed the boundaries, achieving considerable success through hard work and dedication. Her tenacity proves she is ready to take on our nation’s most pressing political challenges."

“This election is a historic opportunity for Arizonans to show their children what this great state stands for. Martha is a strong role model in so many ways and represents the natural choice this November. I am honored to support her candidacy," she continued. 

Rice's endorsement comes one week after President Donald Trump and Vice President campaigned for McSally in Arizona. Rice's former boss, President George W. Bush, has also given his endorsement and campaigned for her in early October.
