Five Questions That Martha McSally Should Answer

5 Questions Martha McSally Should Answer This August Recess
 
Martha McSally should be returning from Washington to Arizona for the next five weeks, and there’s a lot that she needs to answer for

 

PHOENIX — The Senate is out of session for “August recess,” and unelected U.S. Sen. Martha McSally is back in Arizona for the next five weeks. Here are some questions that McSally should have to answer:
 
1. On pre-existing condition coverage protections — What’s your role in protecting Arizona’s health care access? Earlier this summer, you said “It’s not my role” to stand up for Arizonans’ health care access and oppose the Brnovich-Trump-GOP lawsuit to dismantle coverage protections for Arizonans with pre-existing conditions.

2. On McSally’s recent $23,000 fine for campaign finance violations —
 You were recently fined more than $23,000 by the Federal Election Commission for taking $319,000 in illegal campaign contributions. That’s the second time this year that the FEC has caught you committing a major violation. Why do you keep breaking campaign finance laws?

3. On Mitch McConnell’s outside groups already spending to support McSally’s campaign — A Mitch McConnell-linked dark money group has announced a six-figure TV ad buy to bail you out, after you voted with Mitch McConnell 97% of the time. How will you reassure Arizona voters that you’re an independent voice?

4. On McConnell blocking electoral interference legislation — How can you defend Mitch McConnell repeatedly blocking legislation to secure our elections? Aren’t you concerned about the integrity of our electoral processes?

5. On GOP plans for uranium mining near the Grand Canyon — After months of silence on the issue, will you commit to opposing any Trump administration efforts to open up the Grand Canyon area for uranium mining?
