Mark Kelly, the candidate for U.S. Senate in 2020, will be in Lake Havasu City on Sept. 20 for a meet and greet event from 8 to 10 a.m. at the Quality Inn located at 271 S. Lake Havasu Avenue.
Kelly is running in the 2020 special election as a democrat for the seat previously held by the late Sen. John McCain. Republican Martha McSally was appointed by Governor Doug Ducey to fill McCain’s seat after former Senator Jon Kyl resigned the position on Dec. 31, 2018. McSally is also planning to run in the 2020 special election.
Kelly is from Tucson. He is a retired U.S. Navy Captain and astronaut, and the husband of former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords. In 2013, Kelly and his wife co-founded Giffords, with the stated goal of reducing gun violence throughout the country.
