Tucson’s ABC affiliate reports:
U.S. Navy combat veteran and retired NASA astronaut, Mark Kelly announced early Tuesday morning that he is running for U.S. Senate in Arizona in 2020. Kelly will run against Sen. Martha McSally, who was recently appointed by Gov. Doug Ducey to take over late Sen. John McCain’s seat.
“This campaign is about the people of Arizona, not corporate PACs and the mess they’ve created in Washington,” Kelly wrote. “I won’t take a dime of corporate PAC money, and I’ll only answer to Arizonans.”
