Show Number 38

One of the most closely watched races in the upcoming election season is the Senate race in Arizona. 

Martha McSally was appointed to the seat of the late John McCain in 2018 and just two years later she’ll have to win a Senate race for the first time to keep the seat.

Polling shows her possible general election opponent, Democratic Mark Kelly, the former astronaut, navy pilot, and political activist with a slight lead over McSally. 

On this episode of Arizona Edition Live, KAWC’s Lou Gum speaks with Kelly as the democratic candidate travels the state and hears from potential voters. He also addressed the issues on voter’s minds and how they are resonating with him.
