Martha McSally bids farewell to the Senate in a floor speech after election loss


Sen. Martha McSally bid goodbye to her colleagues in a farewell speech on Wednesday, reflecting on her time in the Senate after her election loss earlier in November.

The Arizona Republican touched on meeting Navajo code talkers from World War II, doing ride-alongs with Border Patrol agents, and meeting people across Arizona. She looked back on one of her most powerful moments in Congress — when she testified in front of her colleagues about being raped by a superior officer in the Air Force during a heated debate on Capitol Hill over how to combat military sexual assault.

“I’m grateful to God for giving me the courage to tell my story,” McSally said in her speech. “And I’m blessed to be a senator, not only to lead on reforms that were signed into law but also to use my platform to be an example of hope and healing for others.”
