Iím not ready for a world where Arizona has two Democratic senators

Yeah, yeah, I know: “They had two Democratic senators when McCain and Flake were there.” Har dee har.

The dirty little secret about Maverick and Flake is that they almost always voted with Trump and McConnell. There was one enormous exception to that rule, when McCain voted no on ObamaCare repeal, but on most legislative matters and judicial confirmations they were on the team.

Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly won’t be. And if you believe this new poll from OH Predictive Insights, those are the two people who’ll be representing Arizona in the Senate in 2021.

Retired astronaut Mark Kelly leads [Sen. Martha] McSally, the retired fighter pilot-turned-politician, by a 46 percent to 41 percent margin, according to the poll conducted by OH Predictive Insights, a Phoenix-based pollster, and released first to The Hill…

McSally has fallen behind, the poll suggests, as President Trump’s standing takes a hit in Arizona. Just 47 percent of likely voters in the state approve of Trump’s job performance, down from 50 percent in May and 54 percent in October. His disapproval rating has risen from 46 percent last October to 52 percent today…

These are actually just additional US Senators for California, just like the two in Nevada.

When McCain and that other person were there a few years back, it was already like having two democRats or worse.

This just tells me that even if Trump wins, we’re still going to lose the Republic.

The only hope is a military counter coup, followed by several years of Trump doing his best Pinochet impression. But not even Trump has the guts to realize that the only way to cure Leftists of their insanity is through shooting or hanging.

Don’t forget McCain being as open borders as Bush and the Dims. Don’t forget McCain’s role in the fake pee pee dossier.

only separation with left will work. we’ve lost the demographics and we cannot coexist with the left. the only option for any chance to maintain any semblance of the old republic is separation and self-determination.

McSally is not a good campaigner and not at all likable. The only way we win is to run someone else.

Sorry, but I haven’t met a single person who likes her.

Arizona is like that-flaky. Get it? Fortunately they prefer adults in charge when it comes to voting for POTUS.

I am not sure why the Governor there decided to appoint McSally...

Other than it would make her an incumbent in the next election cycle... but she already lost.

AZ will probably be an example of how big Trump’s coattails are in 2020.

I am not worrying about polls more than a year from an election, but the dynamic of an appointed incumbent who lost a general election, even if it was during a midterm cycle, doesn’t puff me up with confidence.

But, as I said, polling more than 12 months out isn’t something anyone should be sounding giant alarm bells over. McSally was always going to have a fight to hold this appointment in an election... no way it would ever be a cake walk.

In the past few weeks, I've talked to a number of Arizona mayors who have spoken to McSally over the phone or in person. All have said that she listens intently, but she never commits to anything. No one knows where she stands, and she appears to do nothing.

According to the mayors, Sinema listens and acts. She has taken the lead on a number of Arizona's issues, and she does not reject Republican ideas because they are Republican. She is liked by mayors of both parties. The same can't be said for McSally.
