Democrat Sen. Mark Kelly Wins Reelection Bid in Arizona

Democrat Sen. Mark Kelly Wins Reelection Bid in Arizona

The Arizona Senate race has been called for Democrat incumbent Mark Kelly, who beat his Republican challenger Blake Masters.

With 83 percent of the vote reported, Masters has received 46.1 percent of the vote while Kelly has thus far received 51.8 percent of the vote.

Kelly, who originally took office after defeating his Republican opponent Martha McSally in 2020, has reliably voted in line with President Joe Biden’s policy agenda, including on key issues like border security and immigration.

Kelly had a significant lead in the polls for much of the race, with the incumbent holding a six-point lead as recently as late September, according to the Real Clear Politics polling average. The race became tighter throughout the month of October, with the polling average eventually only showing Kelly with a one-point lead as of the fourth of November.
