Mark Kelly Campaign Has To Add More Phone Bank Shifts Because Democrats Are Fired Up Over SCOTUS


The Senate campaign of Mark Kelly in Arizona has had to add more phone bank shifts because Democrats are so fired up over the Supreme Court.

Time reported:

In Arizona, where former astronaut Mark Kelly is running as the Democratic nominee against Republican Senator Martha McSally, local organizers were having to add more phone banking shifts because of the added energy, says Leah Greenberg, co-executive director of the Indivisible Project, a progressive organizing group.

ďThe energy is unbelievable. Itís people who are grieving, itís people who Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a hero of theirs, itís people who canít bear the idea of her replacement being somebody who wouldnít uphold in values,Ē says Greenberg. ďThat will manifest in pressure on these Senators, and it will manifest in electoral outcomes as well.Ē


The conventional wisdom that the Supreme Court vacancy created by the passing of Justice Ginsburg will motivate Republicans more than Democrats is being to proven wrong every hour of every day. Democrats arenít sitting around and waiting to vote. They are volunteering for Senate and donating record sums of money.

Mark Kelly is running to fill the rest of John McCainís term. If he wins, he could take office as soon as November 30, and wreck McConnell and Trumpís plan to confirm Trumpís Supreme Court nominee during the post-election lame-duck Senate session.

The death of RBG has adding fuel to a raging political fire. Democrats are determined to vote Trump out and take back the Senate, and the idea that the Supreme Court doesnít matter to them is out of step with what is happening all over the country.

3. Kelly is almost assuredly going to win

the key is Ossof. If we can get him over 50 on election day, he also goes in early, and that makes things 51-49, and now Mitch has to convince Collins or Murkowski to flip.

5. Republicans hate Martha McSally

I occasionally check in and listen to the local a.m. right wing talk radio. Republicans and right wingers have been hating on McSally for quite a while. They have zero enthusiasm for her. Any of them that vote for her are really just voting against Kelly.
