Full Title: Astronaut Mark Kelly announces Senate run against Republican Air Force pilot appointed to John McCain's seat as he praises wife Gabrielle Giffords for surviving 2011 shooting.
What the couple does not mention in the video is the gun-control initiatives they have championed in the wake of Giffords' shooting nor do they mention President Donald Trump, who won Arizona in the 2016 presidential race and played an huge role in the 2018 Senate campaign.
Kelly is a top Democratic recruit to take on Republican Martha McSally in one of the most closely contested Senate races of the 2020 election.
McSally was appointed to McCain's seat last year after she narrowly lost to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema.

well, it’s up to voters. McSally better get on board the Trump train ant get coached to be a better candidate.
Well that took a little longer than I expected. He spent too much time in space and has a mental disability. Then again, there is the “sandy o” thing going on so..............
Hell wave the bloody shirt
True. McSally’s weakness show during campaign season. Not sure about her yet but we do know she’s weak in that area. She can get better though. The last thing we want in this country is this terrible gun grabbing team of misfits.
Anyone could beat McSally.
The AZ GOP is the only one who doesn’t know it.
Goofy Giffords fights back
The first thing that entered my mind was a HUGE gun debate and who knows what type of governor we’ll end up with since RINO Ducey will be gone.
I have a feeling Grant Woods will make a run for it.
theres another state that can be given back to mexico.....lol
Losing that seat to the dems would be a major defeat making AZ blue - senate speaking.
As always; the problem is the high population centers - the cities. They are infested with brainwashed and clueless leftists.
I guess we’re about to learn how blue Arizona has really become.
Past track records of astronauts in the Senate is not good (Bill Nelson, John Glenn).
She received the very best medical care..That the average American would never receive...and all for no cost...
AZ. needs to wake up...I looked for Megan to run against McSally, but guess the Kelly's won out..
He’ll win! Ward is a terrible campaigner.
When the going gets tough he will trot out his wife who was shot by a madman & soak up the sympathy vote. Arizonians won’t be able to resist it!
Another step taken to abolishing the 2nd Amendment!
There’s a story that Glenn first tried to run as a Republican but got “dissed” by Rhodes’s (the then GOP guv & Ohio political powerhouse!) people, so he went over to cut a deal with the Rat side. The rest is history.
This bald headed freak must never be given a Senate seat.
