The Tucson Weekly's Jim Nintzel mentioned in passing in The Skinny that "[Martha] McSally hasn't signaled her 2014 intentions yet. We hear some folks say she'll run; others say she's laying the groundwork for a run for McCain's Senate seat, should he not seek reelection in 2016."
Hey Jim, did you hear about this? The Arizona Republic's Dan Nowicki and Rebekah Sanders report, McSally says she’s being recruited for Ariz. governor, senate runs | Insiders:
Martha McSally, the up-and-comer candidate and retired Air Force pilot who nearly beat U.S. Rep. Ron Barber for his southern Arizona seat last November, says that she is being recruited not only to challenge him again for Congress in 2014, but also to run for Arizona governor in 2014 or even for U.S. Sen. John McCain’s seat if he retires in 2016.
McSally, a Republican, made the remarks last Thursday to a Rhode Island GOP group, according to a recently posted video found Tuesday by The Arizona Republic. The video appears to have been posted by a member of the group.
“I am being strongly recruited to run for a variety of different positions. It’s amazing once you get that national attention, what happens,” she said in response to a question from the audience. “People have recruited me to try and run for governor of Arizona or Senate when Sen. McCain steps down, and these are all very wonderful thoughts and I appreciate that.”
