Democrat Grant Woods said Republican Martha McSally’s appointment to the U.S. Senate makes a 2020 challenge from him more likely.

“I think it makes it more likely because, as you can tell, I’m not a big fan of (McSally’s) and how she conducted this last election,” he told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Bruce St. James and Pamela Hughes on Wednesday.

Woods has been mulling a potential Senate run since his friend, the late Sen. John McCain, died in August following a yearlong battle with brain cancer.

But the former Republican, who has been critical of McSally and endorsed her Senate opponent Kyrsten Sinema during the campaign, said the appointment catapulted that decision forward.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey announced Tuesday that McSally would succeed outgoing U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl, who was expected to resign on Dec. 31. Kyl was appointed in September.
