Last month (June 2019) Congressional District Six Representative David Schweikert commented that the Mathematical odds on his reelection prospects are on his side.
That may be wishful thinking on his part.
The release of the second quarter campaign contributions reports from the candidates running for office show that the math, as of now, is not on Schweikert or Senator Martha McSally’s side.
The numbers show that all three Congressional Six Candidates (Anita Malik, Stephanie Rimmer, and Dr. Hiral Tipirneni) combined have outraised Mr. Schweikert in the second quarter. Dr. Tipirneni alone raised more than Schweikert.
So much for the math being on his side.
In the United States Senate Race, Captain Mark Kelly outraised Senator Martha McSally.
This is a golden opportunity for Democrats, as long as they run on a center-left inclusive pragmatic progressive program, to pick up two Republican-held seats and make Arizona increasingly blueish.
Hopefully, Democrats can continue the positive momentum.
