Mark Kelly projected to win Senate race in Arizona. According to ABC News, Sen. Mark Kelly is expected to be reelected, gaining a full six-year term in the Senate after successfully positioning himself as an independent-minded candidate.
Blake Masters, a Republican challenger who had the support of the late President Donald Trump, was portrayed by Kelly as being too extremist for Arizona.
With Kelly’s victory, Democrats are one step closer to keeping their tiny Senate majority, and Arizona’s colour remains purple.
“Thank you to the people of Arizona for re-electing me to the United States Senate. From day one, this campaign has been about the many Arizonans – Democrats, Independents, and Republicans – who believe in working together to tackle the significant challenges we face. That’s exactly what I’ve done in my first two years in office and what I will continue to do for as long as I’m there.”” Kelly said in a release Friday.
In contrast to Masters’ $12 million, Kelly, a former NASA astronaut and combat pilot who is married to a former congresswoman named Gabby Giffords, conducted a well-funded campaign.
The junior senator emphasised job development, abortion rights protection, and border security in a series of television advertisements for Arizonans, saying he supports border barriers “where necessary.” He claimed that he confronts Democrats and Vice President Joe Biden “when they’re wrong.”
The late Republican Sen. John McCain’s seat was turned over by Kelly in a special election for the Senate in 2020, giving Democrats control of both Arizona’s Senate seats for the first time in nearly 70 years.
The electorate in Arizona, who also take pleasure in their willingness to vote for different candidates on the same ticket, definitely connected with the message of togetherness. And it deals another setback to Trump’s campaign.
The balance of power in the Senate will now be decided by a close contest in Nevada and a runoff in Georgia.
