Martha McSally refuses to denounce Trump comments on women in the military

Martha McSally – who is running against Victory-endorsed candidate Matt Heinz – refuses to denounce Donald Trump despite his latest comments blaming military women for sexual assault. Matt has consistently condemned Trump’s divisive and hateful rhetoric, and has called on McSally to do the same.
Last night in a national security forum, Trump defended this 2013 tweet that blames women in the military for the incredibly high rates of sexual assault:
“26,000 unreported sexual assults [sic] in the military-only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?”
Despite McSally’s silence on Trump’s latest attack on women, Matt’s campaign was quick to respond:
“This type of blame the victim mentality is just the latest in a long line of despicable comments from the Republican presidential nominee” said Matt’s campaign manager Nichole Johnson. “Voters deserve to know if McSally will stick to her principles and denounce Donald Trump and his campaign.”
