Ad introduces Arizonans to former Shuttle Commander

PHOENIX, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Democratic Senate candidate Mark Kelly's first campaign ad of the 2020 election cycle hit airwaves Thursday.

The minute-long ad introduces the retired astronaut to Arizona's voters. The spot provides insight into Kelly's past, and allows him to discuss his family's history of public service.

Kelly tweeted out the ad Thursday morning.

Kelly is married to former U.S. Representative Gabby Giffords, but he himself is a political newcomer.

His first campaign ad comes just one week after his opponent, Sen. Martha McSally, (R) Arizona, released a spot attacking him for supporting the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Recent reports shows Kelly with a significant lead over McSally in fundraising ahead of November's general election.
