AZ-Sen: TPM, “Scarred By Sinema’s Senate Win, Team Trump Makes Early Moves To Keep AZ Red”


Running scared:

President Donald Trump’s reelection team was put on heightened alert by Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s (D-AZ) win in 2018 — and are now getting on the ground early to prevent it from happening again.

According to the Washington Examiner, the campaign is planning to install veteran operative Brian Seitchik as early as Wednesday to helm the effort about a year and a half before Election Day 2020.

Team Trump is reportedly most worried about “McCain moms,” a nod to the late senator. This group is composed of suburban women who usually vote Republican and did so in 2016, but who chafe against President Donald Trump’s behavior and may have crossed the aisle for Sinema in 2018.

Republicans are also terrified or former Astronaut Mark Kelly (D. AZ) who is running an incredible campaign to defeat appointed U.S. Senator Martha McSally (R. AZ). Let’s keep up the momentum to flip Arizona Blue. Click here to donate and get involved with Kelly’s campaign.
