Former Navy astronaut Mark Kelly, who has been a champion of gun control since his wife was was nearly killed in a mass shooting, said Tuesday that he was running for U.S. Senate in Arizona.

Kelly, a Democrat and husband to former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, made the announcement of his 2020 campaign in a tweet:

Kelly’s entry into the race comes days after former state Attorney General Grant Woods told KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Bruce St. James and Pamela Hughes that he had decided not to run.

Woods had changed political parties to become a Democrat after his longtime friend Republican Sen. John McCain died in August.
