McSally is facing off against astronaut Mark Kelly to fill the remaining two years of McCain’s term in what is set to be a tight race. A May poll found the two candidates statistically tied.
The Arizona Republican was out-fundraised in the first quarter of the year, hauling in $2.1 million compared with the $4 million Kelly garnered in his first weeks as a candidate.
McSally tied herself closely to the president in her failed 2018 campaign and has continued to back the White House during her time in the Senate, providing the administration with a key border state ally on its immigration policies.
The Arizona Democratic Party slammed McSally Tuesday as a “rubber stamp” for Trump’s agenda.
“Partisanship and party loyalty have always been more important to Martha McSally than putting Arizonans first in Washington. McSally is a rubber stamp for national Republicans’ agenda, whether on tax giveaways for big corporations, or the GOP lawsuit to end coverage protections for 2.8 million Arizonans with pre-existing conditions,” Brad Bainum, a spokesperson for the Arizona Democratic Party, said in a statement to The Hill.
