BREAKING: Arizona AG Brnovich Files Statement of Interest To Run For U.S. Senate Against Mark Kelly
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich filed a Statement of Interest today indicating plans to run for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Mark Kelly (D).
Brnovich is termed out from running for re-election, and it has been widely assumed that he plans to run for the Senate seat. Brnovich has been on a major tour of Fox News (and their other networks') programs for the past three months - tallying up 36 promoted interviews between March 9 and June 10.
He is the first well-known person to file the Arizona-required Statement of Interest for the race, although other Republicans are said to be eying it.
Here's his announcement video. (I, for one, am disappointed he did not use the Grateful Dead's "U.S. Blues" as background music. What a missed opportunity.)
Mark Kelly won the seat last year by defeating Martha McSally. The Republicans have been pointing to it as one of their primary targets in 2022.
