President Trump has involved himself early in the Arizona Senate race with a public endorsement yesterday of appointed Sen. Martha McSally (R). Many Republicans believe a divisive primary that McSally came through in 2018 put her in a difficult position for the general election, and in large part is the reason she fell to now-Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D). Mr. Trump’s involvement in the race is designed to help unite the Republicans around McSally so that another counterproductive primary is avoided.
The Democrats, likewise, are coalescing around their leading candidate, retired astronaut Mark Kelly.
