    Default Mark Kelly for Arizona Senate

    A few months ago, I teased out that Mark Kelly might run for Senate in Arizona, and use that as a launching pad to run for President.

    Well, step 1 is happening. He is running against Martha McSally who was appointed to her current seat. Mark Kelly is a shoe in to win giving Arizona two democrats as senators.

    Kelly is a hero and a dream candidate for either party. This is big time.

    He is interesting. I know he says he is against criminals, terrorists, and mentally ill having guns. Tough to argue that. I don't really know what he is for, but if he is a D it can't be very good.

    McSally needs to he primaried. She already lost to a nut bag. She'll never beat Mark Kelly. He's a veteran, astronaut, and the husband of Gabby Giffords. Only a perfect candidate could beat him in Arizona, and she's a definite loser.

    Got to agree with TS. McSally hasn't been able to get much traction. There are reasons for that.

    If you cannot answer that question for yourself, then you're too dumb to post here.

    It can't be that several of the grizzled, old white hyper-conservative posters on GopherHole OTB .... are actually too cowardly to stay in Minnesota and deal with the winters?? They have to tuck tail and run away to Arizona??

    Can it??

    Agreed, so long as the Democrats don't primary him out of the running with an extreme leftist, which is unfortunately a significant probability.

    Challenging a strong candidate in a state that's barely purple would be moronic. I don't see it happening.

    You post as if the Dems aren't often moronic. They can mess up anything, given enough time.

    They often are. But this one seems easy. If anyone with a legit chance starts down that road. you give them a job with the party or something to go away.

    The mistake there was everyone refusing to run because Hillary was such a forgone conclusion. Now we have the opposite problem.

    Kelly won't face a strong challenge. He and his wife are beloved and will be rallied around due to her attempted assassination. Plus, he has enough credibility on gun control by speaking about the need for it and raising money for it for years, which will help inoculate him from the hard left.

    He'll be virtually unopposed.
