“314 Action, a group that backs candidates with scientific backgrounds, is launching a new effort Wednesday to encourage former astronaut and Navy veteran Mark Kelly to run for Senate in Arizona."
The draft efforts "involves a ‘six-figure’ digital ad campaign. The ads will direct supporters to draftmarkkelly.org where they can sign a petition urging him to run. The campaign will largely target Arizonans on social media platforms.” The group's director said "the group's decision to back Kelly was informed by his scientific background and commitment to combating climate change."
Other candidates publicly considering a bid include Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-07) and former state Attorney General Grant Woods (D). "A DSCC aide confirmed that both Kelly, Gallego and Woods have met with the campaign committee." (Roll Call)
