Not surprisingly, former astronaut Mark Kelly, a liberal hypocrite is considering a challenge to Arizona’s Republican Senator, Martha McSally. But according to 314 Action, which oddly identifies as a “pro-science resistance,” the newly coy potential candidate needs coaxing.
The effort to draft Kelly reportedly involves a six-figure digital ad campaign. The ads direct supporters to draftmarkkelly.org where they can sign a petition urging him to run as a climate change advocate. The site refers to him as a “tireless advocate fighting for action on climate change, absurdly posing the question, “Who better to tackle climate change than someone who has seen the earth from space?” The site asserts, “Now more than ever, we need members of the US Senate who understand that the most important issue facing our public safety is climate change.” The illegal invasion, terrorism, proliferation of illicit drugs, rampant crime and failing education system take a back seat. The slick tricksters also vow to “fight the Trump administration’s attacks on science.”
Kelly is a Second Amendment restrictionist for others, but not himself. In 2013, he was caught on a Tucson gun store’s surveillance camera purchasing an AR-15, which he refers to as an “assault weapon” and a semi-automatic pistol. After he was outted, he claimed he intended his purchases to illustrate the need for more stringent gun laws. While awaiting the background check clearance he was unable to take possession of the guns.
Mark Kelly is a friend of Barack Obama and husband of former U. S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), who survived a 2011 horrific mass shooting at a political event in Tucson, taking the lives of six, including Federal Judge John Roll and a nine-year old girl.
Giffords and Kelly have formed a political action committee, Americans for Responsible Solutions, a blandly named gun control group lobbying for universal background checks on gun purchasers and urging restrictions on various gun purchases.
But their restrictions don’t include deadly pets like his daughter’s pit bull that was caught on a cell phone camera killing a baby sea lion on the California beach where Kelly, Giffords and his daughters were vacationing.
Other Democrats considering challenging Sen. Martha McSally are Rep. Ruben Gallego. Republicrat Grant Woods, who backed radical Kyrsten Sinema this year, says he is considering running for Senate — as a Democrat. Woods is McCain’s onetime chief of staff, who has made a career of endorsing Democrats. Newly elected CD 9 U.S. Rep. Greg Stanton, formerly the Phoenix mayor, who ran on a pledge to eliminate a tax on food, reneging on it after the ballots were counted — and who just won election to Sinema’s House seat in November — is also considering launching a senate campaign.
Kelly has already met with the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
In 2014 the left-wing Washington Post referred to Kelly as “Democrats’ Dream Candidate.” Thinking Arizonans regard him as an opportunistic, far-left nightmare.
