Arizona Sen. Martha McSally, a former two-term congresswoman, is in the crosshairs of the extremist big guns as she is once again being hit by volleys of negative ads. The recent barrage is produced by an anti-Trump, pro-impeachment group financed by multi-billionaire leftist Tom Steyer. McSally is one of several GOP senators in battleground states being pressured to break with President Trump.
Steyer made an initial ad buy of $3.1 million in TV and digital ads slamming Republican incumbents in key races.
The reliably left-leaning CNBC All-America Economic Survey recently released a poll that found 47 percent of respondents oppose impeachment, compared with 44 percent who approve. But 88 percent of surveyed Republicans, according to the same poll, oppose impeaching Trump. Americans understand all too well that Democrats are working double time attempting to nullify their 2016 vote.
It’s McSally’s allegiance to President Trump and his unequivocal support of her candidacy that underscores her appeal to conservative, Trump-supporting Arizona voters.
Tom Steyer is not merely a leftist Democrat with exceedingly deep pockets, he is also a 2020 presidential candidate. Although he made his money as a hedge fund manager engaged in a capitalist based economy, his campaign is steeped in Socialist Bernie Sanders’ style rhetoric.
Steyer wants to roll back President Trump’s tax cuts — which energized the economy by allowing Americans to spend more of their own money — but Steyer also wants to impose higher taxes on “the rich,” who already pay the largest share. The rich are not the enemy. They are the ones who took risks and worked long hours to get ahead. They are also job creators who enabled their employees to buy homes, cars, put food on the table and send their kids to college.
Radical Steyer and his like-thinker George Soros, who is funding Second Amendment restrictionist AZ Dem Senate candidate Mark Kelly aka “Mr. Gabby Giffords,” are the problem…not Sen. Martha McSally.
