    Mark Kelly announced that he's running for John McCain's seat in the Senate in 2020.

    It's now held by the woman who lost in the race for Jeff Flake's seat last November but was appointed to take John McCain's seat to finish his term. That's in 2020.

    Can Mark Kelly flip that seat blue?

    I think he has a very good chance to do so since the last time mcsally was on the ballot the voters rejected her. Mark Kelly is a very loved former astronaut.

    We will see what happens in 2020.

    He is a bedwetting gun grabber.
    Hope the voters reject him and his unconstitutional/statist ways.

    A Democrat may get the seat but Kelly isn’t all that liberal.

    Exactly. To win the candidate has to at least centrist and amenable to compromise. Kelly being an outsider has an appeal for the race, and as you say he's not a liberal on all issues. But who knows how he'd fare in negotiating various issues. Az is a gun rights state too.

    But McSally pretty much squandered her appeal to the middle.

    We won't know until 2020. I hope he does well.

    I think it's a spit in McCain's face for mcsally to be in his seat. She's a trump person. We all know how McCain felt about trump.

    I don't know if she's been doing a good job so I can't comment on her job performance.

    I think that McCain would like Mark Kelly to be in his old seat in the Senate.

    He probably isn't very liberal. However I think that he would bring respect back to that seat in the Senate.

    I think the democrats have a big tent and while it's a very known fact that democrats don't agree among themselves, it shows that they can think for themselves.

    I think we need more people from the center in our government.

    The extremes have torn our nation apart.

    Mark Kelly could help bring better balance to the Senate.
