We mentioned in this week's Skinny that former Air Force squadron commander Martha McSally filed the necessary paperwork for a rematch against Congressman Ron Barber earlier this month.
McSally sent out a statement to the press yesterday:
I am humbled by the overwhelming enthusiasm and encouragement I have received from the across the district to run in 2014. Everywhere I go, people are asking me to consider another run and offering incredible support to ensure victory this time. We came so close to winning against so many odds in 2012. I served in uniform for 26 years and ran for Congress in 2012 with a conviction to continue serving and leading at a critical time in our community and nation. After much consideration, I have decided to seriously explore the option of serving in this capacity again.
In a preview of the race that could lie ahead, Team Barber spokesman Rodd McLeod responded:
With McSally, it's always about herself, her plans & political ambitions—but Martha McSally has no plans for helping middle class Arizonans, and just like last election, she hides her positions on the the serious issues that affect our families.
