Heroine Aims for Giffords Seat

Gateway Pundit reports that Colonel Martha McSally, a pilot in the United States Air Force and the first American woman to fly in combat since the 1991 lifting of the prohibition of women in combat, will announce today that she is running for the Congressional District 8 race in Arizona. That is the seat held by Gabby Giffords. McSally is also the first woman to command a USAF fighter squadron, the 354th Fighter Squadron (354 FS) based at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base. In 2001 McSally successfully challenged the military policy that required US and UK servicewomen stationed in Saudi Arabia to wear the body-covering abaya when traveling off base in the country.
