    McSally wins Arizona House seat after recount

    McSally wins Arizona House seat after recount

    Comment:


    >" PHOENIX (AP) - Republican Martha McSally has won a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives by 167 votes after a recount in the nation's last undecided congressional race from the midterm elections.

    The results released by a judge Wednesday mean Republicans will hold their largest House majority in 83 years. House Republicans will control 247 seats to Democrats' 188.

    McSally led Democratic incumbent Ron Barber by 161 votes after all ballots were counted last month. But the margin was so slim that it triggered an automatic recount.

    McSally is a former Air Force combat pilot who won in her second effort to beat Barber.

    Barber took office in 2012 after Rep. Gabrielle Giffords stepped down following a shooting that wounded both her and Barber."<

    Great for Az. She has onehelluva resume'

    Retired Air Force Colonel Martha McSally is a pioneer, leader, servant, and fighter. 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 2001-2002, Martha McSally 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. She has extensive education and experience in national and international security, public policy, and transformational leadership.

    Martha retired from the United States Air Force as a colonel in 2010. She has made her home in Tucson for a number of years, first arriving in the Old Pueblo in 1994, the first of her four assignments to Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.

    In July 2004, Martha took command of the 354th Fighter Squadron becoming the first woman in U.S. history to command a combat aviation unit. In that role, she led her A-10 team on a combat deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom from September 2005 until February 2006. Flying over 225 combat hours during a period of increased combat activity, Martha was awarded a Bronze Star and multiple Air Medals for her combat leadership and performance. Under her command, the 354th Fighter Squadron won the prestigious Air Force Association David C. Schilling Award for the most outstanding contribution in the field of flight in 2006.

    PHOTO_0011-300x225Martha’s spent her final military assignment as a hand-picked leader to standup United States Africa Command, formed to address U.S. security threats emanating from Africa. She led planning and oversight of complex and sensitive counter-terrorism missions, counter-piracy operations, and other military operations and engagements on the continent.

    She retired as a command pilot with over 2600 flight hours, including over 325 combat hours.

    Re: McSally wins Arizona House seat after recount

    This is my district we're talking about and I've met McSally. She seems like a very nice person and she will have an (R) next to her name but this is not a Conservative victory. She is a John McCain/Jon Kyl Republican and she's also tied to the same purse strings those guys are. We'll have to wait and see but I suspect that she will be more inclined toward populist votes instead of principled ones.

    -edit-

    Almost forgot, she's a vegetarian too and, as far as I'm concerned, that's kind of suspicious.

    The guy who has the office right across from mine served with her here at DM and flew with her on multiple missions. While I doubt that he'd contradict any of the facts presented in her bio I can damned sure guarantee you that he'd also have some other stuff to add.

    If McSally could barely win in the 2014 wave, this seat will swing back to the democrats in 2016.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    It has always been the House of Represenatives who have killed the Senates gun control bills, amnesty for illegal aliens and free stuff to non citizens.
