Rep. Martha McSally locks down GOP nomination for Arizona Senate seat

In 2008 Senator John Mc Cain formally becomes the Republican party's White House nominee and chooses a virtually unknown governor as his running mate Alaska's Sarah Palin

She defeated former state Senator Kelli Ward and former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio after campaigning on stronger border laws and aligning with President Trump's tough immigration measures. Sinema meanwhile soured past progressive activists Deedra Abboud. At this point it is unclear whether Trump will travel to Arizona is the fall to campaign for McSally, who is up against Congresswoman Kysten Sinema for U.S. Senator Jeff Flake's seat. The party had been deeply anxious that former state senator Kelli Ward would win the primary, after a freaky campaign in which she repeatedly disparaged a dying Sen.

"This debate belongs at the state level and was already settled in the courts for Arizona", she said following the Supreme Court's Obergefell decision, which expanded marriage equality to all 50 states. She'll face off with the victor of a seven-way Democratic primary in November. "It's a choice between a doer and a talker".

"McSally refuses to support a federal right to marriage equality, votes for "religious exemption" laws created to target LGBTQ people for discrimination, and opposes federal protections for transgender students", she said.

McSally has already launched an ad comparing the whereabouts of the two candidates at the time of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, with McSally beside a fighter jet and Sinema protesting military action in a pink tutu. "How did you guys like those side-by-side outfits?" she said, drawing laughs.

In a statement, Sinema mentioned McCain, who was known for bucking his party. John McCain three days ago. "It's up to all of us to follow his lead of always putting country over party", the Democrat said.

She continued: "Tonight, we look ahead and continue fighting to uphold the values we all share: a fair shot at the American dream and an unwavering commitment to the Arizona we love". Kyrsten Sinema and Martha McSally wrapped up their nominations early Tuesday night.

Trump Cancels Pompeo's North Korea Trip: 'We Are Not Making Sufficient Progress'
The UN's nuclear agency (IAEA) has also said North Korea is continuing with its nuclear programme. Trump has slapped a series of tariffs on Chinese goods, prompting China to respond in kind.

But Trump turned the Republican primary on its head in December, when he endorsed DeSantis, a 39-year-old former Navy lawyer, calling him a "brilliant young leader" on Twitter after the two rode together on Air Force One to a political rally in Alabama. Strategists here believe a brutal primary race makes it harder for McSally to pivot to a general election message. That means a close watch on how the Senate primary shakes out in the Phoenix suburbs.

While McSally has talked up her relationship with Trump on the stump, Arpaio and Ward have slammed her on it, claiming she's a duplicitous flip-flopper in the mold of Flake and Sen.

In Arizona, the Senate race is likely to turn in November on whether Democrats can maximize their base while peeling off enough Republicans. "She's very charming. She's warm". Jeff Flake's decided against seeking a second term, McSally opted to run for Senate, opening up her House seat.

But the races, especially in Arizona, will take on special meaning following the death of Sen.

Martha McSally is an extraordinary woman. Hernandez was credited with saving Giffords life, when he rushed to her aid during the shooting. Before entering politics, she was a social worker.

McSally, 52, who built a reputation as a moderate Republican after winning a competitive congressional race in 2014, had the Republican establishment's backing in the nominating race. "It really is a toss-up".
