Republican Party of Arizona Hosts Senator Martha McSally for Ladies Happy Hour Event in Front of Sellout Crowd in Phoenix
Sen. McSally: “We are going to build a firewall in Arizona”
PHOENIX – A crowd of about 400 Arizonans gathered Wednesday at the Phoenix Airport Marriott for an all-access “Ladies Happy Hour” event with Arizona U.S. Senator Martha McSally, who made the trip to Phoenix following a series of meetings and events with students, physicians, and community leaders in Mohave County.
Organized by the Republican Party of Arizona and its host committee—Governor Jan Brewer, Congresswoman Debbie Lesko, Senate President Karen Fann, Maricopa County Chairwoman Rae Chornenky, Mrs. Cindy Biggs, Mrs. Joyce Schweikert, and Mrs. Maude Gosar— Republican Party of Arizona Chairwoman Kelli Ward opened the events with brief remarks before introducing Senator McSally to the crowd.
“Despite only being in the Senate for a short six months, Senator McSally has become a leading voice for Republican principles on issues ranging from healthcare to immigration to our military and national security,” said Ward. “We are proud of the work she is doing on behalf of all Arizonans and are pleased to see President Trump gave Sen. McSally his total endorsement in what is going to be one of the most pivotal 2020 Senate races in the country.”
A round of applause met Sen. McSally as she entered the room. McSally fired up the crowd with a rousing speech, urging the hundreds of guests in attendance to get involved and look for opportunities to volunteer and support Republican efforts in Arizona ahead of the upcoming 2020 election.
“With a united Arizona Republican Party, and with the effort you all are going to put forward in the months to come, I know we are going to build a firewall in Arizona that keeps this seat, keeps our Senate majority, and re-elects President Trump in 2020,” said McSally. “This is the most important election in our lifetime, and everyone here has to do their part, because we care about the direction of our country and, even though the Left is trying to drag us backward, we must continue to fight for what matters to Americans.”
