Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Mazie Hirono (D. HI) in support of Mark Kelly’s (D. AZ) U.S. Senate campaign:
Multiple independent polls show Democrat Mark Kelly pulling ahead of GOP Senator Martha McSally in Arizona — he has a real shot at flipping this seat!
Republicans are terrified of losing their Senate majority, so they’re going all-in to protect McSally and this GOP Senate seat:
- McSally officially launched her campaign last week with an attack ad against Mark.
- Republicans are flooding the airwaves in Arizona with this ad and more nasty attacks against Mark.
- Trump held a massive rally in Arizona this week to support McSally’s reelection and publicly attacked Mark.
At his rally in Arizona, Trump spewed blatant lies about Mark, saying that he “wants to raise your taxes, open your borders, give away free healthcare to illegal immigrants and he wants to obliterate your Second Amendment.” He then gave Martha McSally his “complete and total support and endorsement.”
This race is one of our best chances of flipping a Senate seat. But Mark needs to be prepared for attacks like these and any more that come his way if he’s going to win.
We need fighters like Mark in the Senate to put the people of Arizona first — by protecting health care, enacting common sense gun safety laws, keeping promises to veterans, and more.
