Jeff Flake's Senate continues to grow as Rep. Martha McSally has officially joined the race.

The Republican congresswoman hopes to come out on top in a crowded field of candidates to fill the seat being vacated by Sen.

"Like our president, I'm exhausted of P.C. politicians and their B.S. excuses", McSally says after the video of Trump's comments.

"I absolutely refuse to bow down to Sharia law", McSally says, after a narrator discusses her successful fight against a US military policy that required women to wear head-to-toe garb in Saudi Arabia. "I told Washington Republicans to grow a pair of ovaries and get the job done", McSally said in the video.

The U.S. Air Force Academy graduate's official biography also notes that her squadron was awarded the Air Force Association David C. Schilling Award in 2006 for their work in Afghanistan. Both candidates join former state Senator Kelli Ward, who has been in the race since October. She becomes the third high-profile Republican to enter the race to replace retiring GOP Sen. But now she says she was "standing up to Sharia law", a cause beloved of Muslim-hating Christian conservatives. McSally, a retired Air Force colonel and the first female fighter pilot to fly a combat mission, will fly herself across Arizona Friday in a World War II fighter plane to personally announce her candidacy.

McSally didn't blanch over President Donald Trump's reported remarks about immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries Thursday coming from what he called "sh-hole countries". And she's finding her inner Trump. "That's just not how leaders carry themselves", she said at the time.

Formally, the United Kingdom is not part of the project, and some are fearing the country might be missing out on a great opportunity.

In a highly-spirited announcement video, in which she described her plan for fighting for national security, economic security, and border security, President Trump commented on her charisma saying, "My friend, Martha McSally, she's the real deal - she's tough". John McCain, is now the GOP's only current alternative to Flake.

Democrats in the Senate primary include Deedra Abboud, Bob Bishop, Cheryl Fowler, Chris Russell and U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, who is considered the front-runner.

McSally acknowledged she has some challenges in the state when it comes to name recognition but pointed out she was named the ninth most-effective member of Congress during her freshman term by the Center for Effective Lawmaking, based on getting bills introduced and passed.

On Friday afternoon, election forecaster Cook Political Report moved its rating of the open seat in CD2 from tossup to leans Democrat.

McSally, 51, kicked off campaigning with an appearance Friday at an air hangar in her hometown of Tucson, followed by stops at a hangar in Phoenix and at the Yavapai County Courthouse in Prescott.

"Whoever escapes the primary in August, they will be held accountable for touting their radical stripes at every opportunity and willingness to take stances on issues that are simply out of touch with Arizonan voters", state Democratic Party spokesman Drew Anderson said.
