McSally reports raising nearly $9 million for Senate race

Republican Sen. Martha McSally has posted her strongest quarterly fundraising yet, but her haul was still dwarfed by that of her Democratic rival.

McSally reported $8.9 million during the three-month period that ended June 30 and ended the quarter with just under $11 million in the bank.

Fox News Poll: Biden ahead in Arizona, Kelly trouncing McSally in Senate race

A new Fox News Poll finds the state shading blue -- especially in the race for the U.S. Senate, where Democrat Mark Kelly bests incumbent Republican Sen. Martha McSally by a 50-37 percent margin among Arizona registered voters.

McSally was appointed to John McCain’s former Senate seat in 2018 and is in a tough fight to hold onto it. She faces Democrat Mark Kelly, who reported raising more than $12 million during the quarter with $24 million in the bank.

Democrats think McSally is vulnerable as Arizona, once a Republican stronghold, becomes increasingly friendly territory for them. McSally lost a 2018 race for Arizona’s other Senate seat to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema.
