10. K & R

I am a resident of Southern AZ and will never forget that horrible day. Gabby was a wonderful congresswoman to all of her constituents, Democrat and Republican. Mark Kelly has been such a devoted husband, a true example of leadership we need back in Washington.

A refreshing new Democratic candidate running for something OTHER than the presidency!

Maybe he will start a precedent!

14. Later on, he will

make a fine president. Brains, integrity, honesty and valor. He would be terrific. Unlike the gop, we democratic voters do not scrape the bottom of the slime barrel to elect a president to represent us.

36. I'll take the Navy Airdale in that fight.

The Air Force is a fine organization, if you don't want to be in the military. Sorry, the old Army guy couldn't resist.

I'm miles away from Arizona but I just made a contribution.

33. Kelly is the kind of candidate we need to find to run for President, a clear hero, a man of science

and owed nobody anything. Above all, not a politician.

There are other Kelly's to be found
