While the nation waits with baited breath for the final votes for President of the United States to be tallied, there is one race that became official about which we couldn’t be happier.
Former astronaut and naval pilot, Democrat Mark Kelly defeated incumbent Republican Martha McSally for Senator. This gives Arizona two Democratic Senators now, thus turning the state blue on the national level, (Arizona Democrats already are pretty much guaranteed of keeping five of nine congressional seats). We’ve lived here a long time and we never thought we’d see this event. The last time it happened was 1952.
Congratulations to Mark Kelly! We have no doubt you’ll be as successful in this endeavor as you were as an astronaut, engineer, pilot and author.
