Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Bob Casey, Jr. (D. PA) in support of Mark Kelly’s (D. AZ) U.S. Senate campaign:
Recent polls show that Mark Kelly is winning the race for a U.S. Senate seat Democrats haven't held in 50 years.
It may sound like a tough thing to accomplish but Captain Kelly has been to space, flown combat missions, and taken on the National Rifle Association — so we’re positive that he's up for the challenge.
Republicans know that Mark could give us a critical chance to win a Democratic majority in the Senate — and they'll spend big to slow Mark's momentum. That's why Bob wants you to chip in now and help make sure Mark has the resources to mount a winning campaign.
This may be Mark's first campaign for office, but he knows a lot about duty and service.
As a naval officer and astronaut, he served our nation every day. As a citizen, he responded to a mass shooting at an event held by his wife, former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, by advocating for common sense gun reform. He's also been a strong advocate for action to tackle climate change.
Mark's running a strong grassroots campaign — and it's paying off in the polls — but he needs our help to ensure he can reach the voters he needs to win on their doorsteps, in their communities, and on the airwaves.
