A fundraising email for Sen. Martha McSallyMartha Elizabeth McSallyKelly raises million in third quarter Ruben Gallego is left's favorite to take on Sinema Texas not hiring private contractor for election audit MORE (R-Ariz.) capitalized on her exchange with a CNN reporter in the halls of the Senate on Thursday, urging her supporters to fight back against "liberal hacks."
The message was sent after McSally was caught on-camera calling CNN's Manu Raju a "liberal hack" and declining to comment on the upcoming Senate impeachment trial following the delivery of articles of impeachment by the House this week.
"I've said it before and I'll say it again: I'm not in the Senate to play politics, especially with liberal hacks who profit off of spin," McSally wrote in the email.
"I'm in the Senate to fight for all Arizonans, not play games with the left-wing media," she added.
