Washington, DC –Today, Senate Majority PAC President J.B. Poersch released the following statement on the swearing-in of Arizona’s newest U.S. Senator Mark Kelly:
“Arizonans are now represented by two Democrats in the Senate for the first time in over 60 years. Today, Captain Mark Kelly is joining the U.S. Senate at a time when our economy needs to be rebuilt, a global pandemic needs to be eradicated, and our small businesses and frontline workers need relief. Throughout his career and years of service, Senator Kelly has shown that he is able to overcome any challenge, and his tenure as a Senator will surely be no different.
“On the campaign trail, and during his transition, Senator Kelly has demonstrated that he will be a strong, independent voice focused on delivering results for Arizona – someone who will be unafraid to demonstrate true leadership by putting the needs of the country ahead of politics and partisanship. We congratulate Mark again on his victory and wish him and his family the best as he takes the oath of office today.”
