Retired Astronaut Mark Kelly Announces His Senate Bid

Retired astronaut Mark Kelly just announced a Senate bid. He wants John McCain’s old seat.

Kelly, 54, 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 is a former Republican congresswoman who was appointed to McCain’s seat last year after she narrowly lost to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema. McSally leaned heavily on her record as the first woman to fly a combat mission as a fighter pilot, but she was hurt by her embrace of President Donald Trump.

LOL. That’s how you liberal, right?

Should be interesting to watch…
