America depends on top notch fighter pilots, many of whom are produced at Luke Air Force Base. Luke Air Force Base is not only vital to our national security, but also to our local communities and economy. There has not been a stronger advocate in Washington for Luke than Senator John McCain. Thousands of jobs depend on Luke. Without John McCain's leadership and experience, we could have lost many of those jobs. He took a common sense, and a bipartisan approach when working with local and state officials. And together, we secured the Fighter Pilot Training Program, which is so meaningful to all of us. Many of the individuals that pass through Luke Air Force Base, do eventually end up retiring here, because we feel like this is a community that shares those values. And certainly I think John McCain understands those values as well as the cultures and traditions that we hold dear in the military. In strengthening Luke, and in so many other ways, he's made Arizona and America stronger, and he's never wavered. I'm John McCain and I approve this message.
