Recent polls show the Republican Senate candidate in Arizona continues gaining ground, suggesting the circus-like Kavanaugh hearings could help the GOP hold Congress.
Polls show Republican Congresswoman Martha McSally has a slight advantage and higher favorability ratings than her Democratic opponent, Kyrsten Sinema.
But today the red state is very purple, with roughly a third of registered voters Republican (1.2 million), a third independent (1.2 million) and a third Democrat (1.1 million).
Tuesday the pro-abortion rights group Emily's List launched a $1 million Spanish-language TV ad campaign attacking McSally’s Obamacare vote.
Another study “Tracking Congress in the Age of Trump” by the political website 538.com found McSally supported President Trump's agenda in 98 percent of her votes, Sinema 62 percent – a point higher than West Virgina's moderate Sen. Joe Manchin and considerably higher than minority leaders Chuck Schumer (25) and Nancy Pelosi (18).
