Trump endorses McSally in Arizona Senate race
McSally ran in 2018 to replace the retiring Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) but fell short to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema. She was later appointed to her current seat in December after the late Sen. John McCain’s (R) death in August, with former Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) serving in the interim months.
McSally is facing off against astronaut Mark Kelly to fill the remaining two years of McCain’s term in what is set to be a tight race. A May poll found the two candidates statistically tied.
The Arizona Republican was out-fundraised in the first quarter of the year, hauling in $2.1 million compared with the $4 million Kelly garnered in his first weeks as a candidate.
