Sen. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) is statistically tied with her top challenger, retired astronaut Mark Kelly (D), long before either candidate begins selling themselves to voters in paid advertising, a new poll shows.
The survey, conducted by the Phoenix-based pollster OH Predictive Insights, shows McSally drawing 45 percent of the vote compared with 44 percent for Kelly. The poll of 600 likely voters carried a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
“In this dogfight between two former military pilots, Mark Kelly is on Sen. McSally’s six and closing,” said Mike Noble, OH’s chief of research.
