Trump Celebrates Martha McSally’s GOP Primary Victory By Mocking Jeff Flake’s Rejected Endorsement

President Donald Trump has weighed in on the GOP primary results in the Arizona Senate race.

On Tuesday night, Congresswoman Martha McSally clinched the Republican nomination, earning over 51% of the vote and handily defeating Dr. Kelli Ward and Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

McSally is hoping to fill the seat being left vacant by vocal Trump critic Sen. Jeff Flake. Flake actually endorsed McSally during the primary, which she flat-out rejected as Flake is seen as political poison among many Arizona Republicans.

Well, Trump offered McSally a congratulatory tweet, taking a shot at Flake in the process.

“Martha McSally, running in the Arizona Primary for U.S. Senate, was endorsed by rejected Senator Jeff Flake….and turned it down – a first!” Trump exclaimed. “Now Martha, a great U.S. Military fighter jet pilot and highly respected member of Congress, WINS BIG. Congratulations, and on to November!”

McSally will now be facing off against Democratic candidate Rep. Kyrsten Sinema in November.

Trump also invoked the Hillary Clinton‘s emails in another tweet this evening, saying that the “next move better be” made by the FBI and DOJ or their “credibility will be forever gone!”
