Received this e-mail today from my former U.S. Senator from my current state, Barbara Boxer (D. CA), in support of Mark Kelly’s (D. AZ) U.S. Senate campaign:
One of the country's most important U.S. Senate campaigns is trending in OUR direction.
Taking back the Senate hinges on winning this campaign in Arizona, and a recent poll shows Democrat Mark Kelly leading his Republican opponent.
Republican Martha McSally already lost one Senate race, and we can beat her again.
And Captain Mark Kelly – a retired U.S. Navy combat pilot, engineer, NASA astronaut, and husband to former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords – is the person to do just that.
But we need to get started now to show Captain Kelly we’ve got his back.
