Senate Spotlight: Sen. Mark Kelly (AZ)

July 20, 2022

Democrats will win in November if we all do our part. At JDCA, we’re focusing our efforts in states where the Jewish electorate can deliver victory for Democrats in close races. For example, the Jewish population of Arizona is around 113,000. In 2020, President Biden won the state by just 10,457 votes, and we know the Jewish vote played a key role.

In this critically important midterm election, Jewish Dems are proud to support Senator Mark Kelly for re-election in Arizona and we know if we turn out Jewish voters in support of Democrats like Mark Kelly, we can ensure his victory, and with it, the Democratic Senate majority. Help Democrats win this November so we can reach more Jewish voters in Arizona and other states where the Jewish vote matters.

Senator Mark Kelly is a Navy Veteran and retired NASA astronaut who has championed gun safety reform alongside his wife, former Arizona congresswoman and gun violence survivor, the Hon. Gabby Giffords. Since winning his special election in 2020, Senator Kelly has been committed to transparent leadership, delivered millions of dollars in funding to rebuild Arizona’s infrastructure through President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, and is fighting for the rights of all Arizonans. 

Democrats’ current Senate majority is the slimmest in American history. The fate of the Senate and our ability to stop Republican obstruction and extremism could hinge on Mark Kelly’s re-election.
