ㅤ"Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Ducey appointed Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ) to replace Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) as the next U.S. senator on Tuesday.
ㅤDucey temporarily appointed Kyl to serve as senator after the death of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). Kyl will leave his post on December 31.
ㅤ’With her experience and long record of service, Martha is uniquely qualified to step up and fight for Arizona’s interests in the U.S. Senate,’ Ducey said in a statement Tuesday."

ㅤ"A new poll from OH Predictive Insights and ABC15 Arizona (ABC15/OHPI) shows Republican Martha McSally steadily leading Democrat Kyrsten Sinema in the Arizona United States Senate race.
ㅤMcSally currently holds a seven point lead over Sinema, 52 percent to Sinema’s 45 percent. Two percent are still undecided and one percent support Green candidate Angela Green."

ㅤ"McSally, in this latest poll released Wednesday, leads Sinema by six percent in their bid to replace retiring Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ). At 47 percent, McSally has pulled far ahead of Sinema’s 41 percent. Green Party candidate Angela Green gets four percent of the vote, and eight percent are undecided.
ㅤThe survey was conducted from Oct. 1 to Oct. 2, with a sample size of 600 and a margin of error of four percent–which means that McSally’s lead of six percent is outside the poll’s margin of error. The poll was conducted by pollster Mike Noble’s OH Predictive Insights and ABC15, a local television network."

ㅤ”John McCain detested Donald Trump so much so that he willfully participated in assisting the Hillary Clinton campaign with what became the Trump/Russia collusion hoax. The longtime Arizona senator was said to be increasingly bitter over the likelihood he would not live to see the destruction of the Trump presidency. That bitterness would likely be worsened if McCain knew his replacement was former longtime Arizona senator, Jon Kyle—a man now firmly on the side of President Trump.”

ㅤ"Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey will make the appointment that will fill the seat of Sen. John McCain, who died Saturday after a year-long battle with brain cancer.
ㅤUnder state law the replacement must be of the same party as Mr. McCain, a Republican, according to election experts. That ensures the GOP will maintain control of the Senate — though given Mr. Ducey is a Republican as well, that was likely anyway."

ㅤ”With troops in all states, the National Guard has been called on by past Presidents and governors to help secure U.S. borders, and the Texas contingent said it had ‘firsthand knowledge of the mission and operating area’ that will allow it to move seamlessly into the new role.
ㅤThe Republican governors of the border states of Arizona and New Mexico also welcomed deployment of the guard along the southwest border as a matter of public safety, but it was unclear how Democratic California Gov. Jerry Brown would respond to Trump’s call.”
ㅤô¿ô …I give Jerry Brown credit for being slightly smarter than the governor of Oregon.
