tucson Weekly-U.S. Rep. Kirkpatrick Announces Plans to Run for McCain's Senate Seat

Posted By Jim Nintzel on Tue, May 26, 2015 at 11:02 AM

Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick announced today that she wants a promotion to the U.S. Senate.

Kirkpatrick, a Democrat serving her third term in Congress representing Northern Arizona, is seeking the seat now held by Sen. John McCain.

“I respect John McCain’s service to our nation,” Kirkpatrick said in a video announcing her plans to run for Senate. “I just believe our state is changing. I believe Arizonans should have a real choice who they send to the United States Senate.”

McCain has already announced he’s running for reelection, but the 78-year-old Republican may be vulnerable as he seeks his sixth term. A recent Public Policy Polling survey showed that his job approval rating was down at 41 percent, with half of the 600 voters surveyed saying that they disapproved of the job he was doing.

1. she doesn't stand a chance.

The only way to get McCain out of office is if he retires or dies.
