After she failed to beat Kyrsten Sinema (D) in the race for Arizona’s open senatorial seat in 2018, then-Representative Martha McSally (R) was elevated to the position of Senator when he chose her to fill the seat of John McCain, who had passed away.
In 2020, McSally must win an election if she wants to keep her seat. If she looks weak, Blake Masters, a venture capitalist, may challenge McSally in the GOP primary.
Masters describes his vision for Arizona and America as focused on dignified work, healthy families, and strong communities. Debra Heine reports on a possible Masters challenge to McSally at American Greatness. writing:
“Americans want dignified work, healthy families, and strong communities,” he said in a text message. “They deserve political leaders who will fight for those things. That means securing the border; getting affordable medical care to every citizen who needs it; taking on the higher education racket; stopping stupid foreign wars; and prioritizing quality of life and high-paying jobs rather than cheap imports and ever-higher profits for the Fortune 500, which never seem to benefit the middle class.”
Masters added that “this is possible — but only if conservatives stop playing defense and step up to take responsibility for our shared future.”
After losing to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema, McSally was appointed to interim Senator Jon Kyl’s seat. Kyl stepped down from the late Republican Sen. John McCain’s seat in December of 2018.
