Retired astronaut Mark Kelly announces 2020 Senate bid for McCain seat

Retired astronaut Mark Kelly announced Tuesday that he will run for the late Sen. John McCain’s Arizona Senate seat in 2020 to finish the term.

Kelly, who came into the national spotlight when his wife, former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords,was shot in a failed assassination attempt, will seek to take on Sen. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., who was appointed to McCain’s seat last year after she was narrowly defeated by now-Sen. Kyrsten Sinema for former Sen. Jeff Flake’s seat.

“I care about people. I care about the state of Arizona. I care about this nation,” Kelly said in the video posted to his Twitter account Tuesday. “So because of that, I’ve decided I’m launching a campaign for the United States Senate.”

The video, which runs more than four minutes, gives a detailed account of Kelly’s experience as a former Navy pilot, an astronaut, and being Giffords' husband.
