PHOENIX – Today, the McSally for Senate campaign launched “Arla,” a new ad that highlights Senator Martha McSally’s legislation to lower the cost of prescription drugs for Arizona’s seniors and families. Arla, a senior citizen from Sun City, shares why she trusts Martha to make medicines more affordable for seniors.
Arla: “We live in an aging community. People really need help to make their medicines affordable. We really appreciate what Martha McSally is doing. Martha McSally is taking on these large drug companies.”
Senator McSally: “I’m fighting against the big insurance companies, the big pharmaceutical companies. We can bring down the cost of prescription drugs.”
Arla: “Martha McSally’s the one that we need in the Senate. I don’t believe she’ll ever back down.”
