Your move, Mark

After a landslide victory last night Senator McSally hit the airwaves this morning to announce a 7-debate challenge to Mark Kelly.

As a reminder, Missing Mark has been staying tucked away and tightly controlled by his handlers, while Martha has been hard at work for Arizonans.

It’s no surprise that Mark Kelly is shying away from accepting our challenge—he doesn’t want Arizonans to know that, as Senator McSally put it this morning, he’d be nothing more than a Trojan Horse for the most radical liberal ideas that are now mainstream among Democrats: government takeover of health care, raising taxes, and defunding the police.

In case you missed it, check out her interviews:

On the need for debates…

“The radical left agenda is out of step with Arizona. My opponent is pretending he’s a moderate, but that’s a Trojan horse. His first vote will be for Chuck Schumer. That will decide the Senate majority, and the direction of our country is at stake. So I’m challenging him to these seven debates because Arizonans deserve to understand his positions and deserve to understand the implications of their vote.”

On restoring a healthy economy…

“This is a once-in-a century pandemic that’s hit us, and we’re all concerned about lives, our loved ones’ lives, those who are vulnerable, and also livelihoods. There’s people all up and down my street who never were needing to rely on unemployment or other assistance, or small business owners. And I’ve been fighting since this pandemic hit with the CARES Act to get relief out to small businesses through the successful PPP program.

“We’ve saved over one million jobs in Arizona supporting the additional unemployment benefits, supporting our frontline health care heroes, investing in treatments, and investing in vaccines. This is all hands on deck. I’ve been in the arena fighting for Arizonans. More needs to be done and each need to take care of each other.”

Friendly reminder, here are just a few things he may be uncomfortable answering:

  • Why he ripped off Arizonans by taking $15 million from taxpayers and, instead of hiring the hundreds of workers promised, laid people off instead. (Tucson Sentinel, 2/21/19; KGUN, 2/15/19)
  • Why he courted investment from Tencent, which is tied to the Chinese government, to start his business—a move that experts warn jeopardizes our national security. (RealClearPolitics, 7/9/20)
  • Why he supported far-left positions, and even said would have voted for self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders. (AZ Family, 2/14/20)
