Arizona Republican Senator Martha McSally is asking supporters to “fast a meal” and pass along the savings to her campaign.
According to an Arizona CBS local affiliate, McSally made the callous pitch at a recent event in northern Arizona.
“We’re doing our part to catch up, you know, to get our message out,” McSally said in an audio recording obtained by Arizona’s Family. “But it takes resources. So, anybody can give, I’m not ashamed to ask, to invest. If you can give a dollar, five dollars, if you can fast a meal and give what that would be.”
Kelly co-founded the organization now known as the Giffords Foundation with his wife, the former congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot and seriously injured while meeting with constituents in Tucson in January 2011.
McSally is among the most talented fundraisers among the Republicans running for re-election this year, but she faces a tough match-up to catch up to Kelly.
Right out of the gate, Kelly proved himself to be a formidable fundraiser, bringing in several million dollars per quarter. He raised an eye-popping $12.8 million in 2020's second quarter compared to $9.2 million for McSally.
