President Donald Trump praised Rep. Martha McSally Monday, who is seeking the Republican nomination for the hotly contested U.S. Senate seat in Arizona.

“I’ve gotten to know her very well, and she is terrific,” Trump said of McSally, after touting her resume as an Air Force veteran.

McSally was one of six congressional members at Fort Drum in upstate New York with Trump to witness his signing of the national defense authorization act, this year named after ailing U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona.

McCain’s Capitol Hill colleagues named the Pentagon legislation in his honor as he fights a deadly form of brain cancer at his family’s retreat near Sedona. He is a six-term senator, former prisoner of war, GOP presidential nominee and chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. In a statement Monday, McCain said he was proud the legislation would give American service members the resources they need.
