Senator Kelly In the News: July 22, 2022
In the Senate, Kelly has worked to lower costs, get our economy back on track, and make Washington work for people, not corporations. Working with both Republicans and Democrats, Kelly has spent his first year and a half in office delivering results for our state.
To keep up with Senator Kelly’s work and the re-election campaign, check out the top three clips of the past week highlighting just some of what Kelly’s been up to:

“It’s well past time for Congress to pass into law our microchip manufacturing plan to create high-paying jobs and strengthen our supply chains,” Kelly said in a press release Monday.
Bipartisan legislation to provide $52 billion in incentives for the semiconductor industry was thought to be in trouble recently, but Senate Republican leaders appear to be easing their opposition.”
“Sen. Mark Kelly’s campaign on Friday kicked off “Republicans for Kelly,” a group of approximately 50 Republicans and independents who are supporting the Arizona Democrat’s reelection bid.
The list, designed to demonstrate Kelly’s crossover appeal in Arizona, a newly purple state, includes business executives, past and present politicians and people in a variety of sectors across Arizona.”
Democratic candidates started July with a huge financial advantage in four of five US Senate battlegrounds that could determine which party controls the chamber next January, according to Federal Election Commission filings…
Senator Mark Kelly of Arizona, who raised $13.6 million and spent $12 million in the second quarter, had the widest margin, with $24.9 million in the bank. That was 12 times as much as the biggest war chest among his potential GOP opponents, who are vying with one another ahead of the state’s Aug. 2 primary.
