Conservative Martha McSally has won the last open congressional race in Arizona, giving the Republicans another voice in Congress.
The true measure of success is the seat she won. McSally, a pro-gun supporter, beat out Rob Barber for the seat that former Congresswoman and now anti-gunner Gabrielle Giffords held before she was shot.
According to the NRA, Giffords’ anti-gun group, Americans for Responsible Solutions (ARS), spent over $2 million in this race, a whopping 4 times more than any other race. This comes after anti-gun groups across the country under the long arm of Michael Bloomberg’s billions of dollars outspent pro-gun groups 35-1.
“The men and women of the NRA congratulate Martha McSally on a hard fought victory. Martha stood on principle and supported our constitutional freedoms, despite being relentlessly attacked by the gun control movement,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA Political Victory Fund. “Michael Bloomberg and national anti-gun groups were dealt a significant blow by Second Amendment supporters across the country on election day. A clear takeaway from these elections is that voters do not support Michael Bloomberg’s extreme anti-gun agenda.”
