Washington, D.C. – Senate Majority PAC President JB Poersch released the following statement on Senator Mark Kelly’s re-election victory in Arizona’s U.S. Senate race:
“Today, Democrats won our third consecutive Senate election in Arizona, and we remain in a strong position to defend and expand our Senate majority.”
“Arizonans decisively rejected Trump’s handpicked candidate because they saw him for what he truly is—an election denier who wants to override the will of voters and an extremist who supports a nationwide abortion ban.”
“As a Senator, Mark Kelly’s North Star has always been finding common ground with Democrats and Republicans to deliver on the issues that matter most to hard-working Arizonans, from lowering costs and cutting taxes to getting relief for small business owners. That’s why voters of every political persuasion re-elected him to keep working tirelessly on behalf of Arizona families, small businesses, veterans, and servicemembers.”
“Every time he has been asked, Mark Kelly has answered the call to serve—we’re incredibly proud that our strategic investments in Arizona secured significant communication advantages across the state and helped to ensure that he will serve again for a full term.”
