McSally Again Votes To Let Trump Cut Arizona Military Funding
Martha McSally yet again failed to fight for Arizona today, proving that she’ll always side with her party and Mitch McConnell over our state.
PHOENIX — Unelected U.S. Sen. Martha McSally today once again voted to raid $30 million in military construction funds from Arizona’s Fort Huachuca, while leaving the door open to further Arizona funding raids.
- THEN: In March, McSally tried to justify her vote to back Trump’s funding raid by claiming to have “assurances” that Arizona would not be negatively impacted by the funding cuts.
- NOW: Today, McSally supported Trump’s ability to raid the funds, despite knowing that a $30 million Fort Huachuca military construction project is on the chopping block.
But it’s out of step with what the U.S. Army and McSally herself have previously said about the project. In 2017, McSally called the Fort Huachuca project part of “critical” funding that “will provide our military with the tools necessary to complete their missions.” Similarly, the U.S. Army stressed the importance of the project as necessary to “to promote a healthier, safer work environment,” warning of “unsafe” conditions.
