The Arizona Republic reports:
Sen. Martha McSally, whose race against Democratic challenger Mark Kelly was decided more than a week ago, has conceded, days after it became clear that it was mathematically impossible for her to catch up.
Her concession marked the end of a fierce, year-and-a-half-long race to fill the remainder of the term won by the late Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who died in 2018. McSally, R-Ariz., called Kelly on Friday to congratulate him on a hard-fought race, she said in a written statement released by her campaign.
“With nearly all the votes counted, I called Mark Kelly this morning to congratulate him on winning this race,” her statement said. “I also offered support in his transition to ensure Arizonans are best served during this time. I wish him all the best.”
