Arizona’s Martha McSally Would Be A Great Choice For Trump's Vice President
She’s the first female Air Force fighter pilot to fly in combat, a retired colonel who once sued the Pentagon over a policy on Muslim dress, and a self-described moderate who rails against government overreach.
McSally often tells audiences about how she sued Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld over a requirement that female servicewomen wear a headscarf and an abaya, a traditional body-covering robe worn by many conservative Muslim women, when traveling off base in Saudi Arabia. McSally had internally asked for changes to the policy for years, but filed a lawsuit in late 2001 after spending some time being posted in the country. The policy was eventually overturned.
During her 2012 campaign for a House seat in Arizona’s swing 2nd District , in a questionnaire from a conservative group, McSally said she supported repealing Obamacare and prohibiting abortion except when it was necessary to prevent the death of the mother.
