FIRST WATCH: New 60-Second McSally Ad Details Her Fight For Women Servicemembers

Martha McSally has released a new 60-second ad detailing her eight-year battle with the Defense Department on behalf of her and other women serving in the U.S. military in Saudi Arabia in the 1990's.

The new ad - titled "Stand Up" - is part of her campaign to win the Republican nomination to defeat incumbent Rep. Ron Barber (D-CD2) in one of the closest and most closely-watched Congressional races in the country.

It features McSally speaking from a kitchen (hers?) about how she took on Donald Rumsfeld and the Pentagon regarding the decision to compel female servicemembers to wear headcoverings off base in Saudi Arabia.

The ad starts running today in the Tucson market.
