WASHINGTON — Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey is praising Sen. Martha McSally for revealing that a superior officer raped her when she was in the U.S. Air Force.
Ducey on Thursday used Twitter to thank McSally "for coming forward and speaking out."
He says her disclosure Wednesday during a congressional hearing in Washington "took an amazing of courage and bravery."
Ducey told McSally that "Arizona is with you."
McSally tweeted a message of thanks for support on Thursday, as well.
Thank you for the outpouring of support. It means a lot for all who have reached out.— Martha McSally (@SenMcSallyAZ) March 7, 2019
Ducey appointed McSally, a fellow Republican, in December to replace the late GOP Sen. John McCain after she narrowly lost last year's race for Arizona's other Senate seat to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema.
