Martha McSally beats out former Gabbie Giffords aid for Congressional Seat

U.S. Representative Ron Barber, an Arizona Democrat and former aide to Gabrielle Giffords, has officially lost his re-election bid to the Republican challenger in November's congressional elections, a judge certified on Wednesday.

A superior court judge declared Martha McSally, a retired Air Force colonel and a pioneer of women's combat aviation in the 1990s, the winner after a state-mandated recount showed she won by 167 votes in the Nov. 4 election.

"There's no getting around that this was an incredibly close and hard-fought race. After what's been a long campaign season, it's time to come together and heal our community," McSally said in a statement.

Everyone should know about McCain by now. He was the canary who turned traitor.

Ted

I'm not a Vet, but I agree with you.

   FRJM, thank you. Hell, that's all I can say ! THANK YOU !

To bad it was so close.  Az in not a blue state.  why so close?  Could be to many dead people voting?

Then it's time to clean up the voter rolls and send any "hyphens" back to where ever they originated.

The last primary mcpain had was nasty. We tried like heck to vote him out of office. But the Tea Party was new here then. Since then we have gained more clout, became active in all our precincts, became committeemen to the point that we were able to censor mcpain. If he runs again he will get NO SUPPORT from AZ repubs., esp here in Maricopa Cty. So when the general came up we had to hold our nose to vote for him because the demoncrat was much. much worse if you can imagine that. This next time around 2016 will be the real test!

OH you mean the Illegal - aliens

This district is Tuscon...LOTS of illegals there that vote. I am surprised it was not closer.

Tucson is a very liberal city.  In fact I think it is a sanctuary city.  Suppose to be illegal in this state but you know how that goes.

Some group should look into it. If only someone would go to jail, if found wrong doing on  anybodies part. Help save the Republic!! 

MAK

Illegal aliens in Southern Arizona and Tucson is a Demokrat stronghold. 

Yipeeeeeeeeeeee, A real fighter, coming to get Ya!  Come with both guns drawn because their are enemies in our government that need to be removed!

ALERT ALERT

TRUMP:  Trump To Give ‘Start Your Engines’ Command At Dayton

President Donald Trump will give the command for drivers to start their engines before the Daytona 500.

Daytona International Speedway officials named Trump the grand marshal for NASCAR’s season opener, meaning he will deliver the most famous four words in auto racing. “Gentleman, start your engines,” has been a staple of races around the country and world for decades.

White House spokesman Judd Deere said Thursday the president plans to attend the race. Track president Chip Wile confirmed the news in a release.

“Daytona International Speedway has been privileged to have hosted several sitting presidents of the United States over our history,” Wile said. “We’re honored that the president of the United States has chosen to experience the pageantry and excitement of ‘The Great American Race.’”

Trump is the third sitting president to attend a race at Daytona, but only the second to attend the Daytona 500. George W. Bush attended in 2004. Trump is the first to be given an honorary role in pre-race ceremonies.

Trump is scheduled to spend part of the Presidents Day weekend at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a flight restriction for Sunday and the U.S. Secret Service, which is responsible for presidential security, also tweeted to fans that drones are prohibited within 30 miles of the race in Daytona Beach — a restriction put in place for presidential visits.

Trump has hosted previous NASCAR champions at the White House and last October awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to motorsports titan Roger Penske. Last year, Trump also praised retired driver Mario Andretti, the Daytona 500 winner in 1967, reminiscing about a ride Andretti gave him in a race car for his reality show “The Apprentice.”

“I said, ‘Mario, get me out of here. I want to get out of this car,’” Trump recalled. “We went so fast. We literally — we covered four blocks in like a second.”
