TUCSON, Ariz. — A close race in Arizona between Senator Martha McSally and Mark Kelly could decide which party controls the senate.

We caught up with the incumbent at a campaign event Sunday.

Senator Martha McSally is crisscrossing the state leading up to Election Day.

“Arizona is the battleground to decide the direction of the country,” said McSally.

We caught up with her in Tucson at a campaign event with Senator Ted Cruz.

“A vote for me is a vote for lower taxes, less regulation, rebuilding the economy, securing our border, providing safety and security for everyone. A vote for Mark Kelly is the 51st vote for Chuck Schumer and the radical left.”

The stakes are high in the race to fill the term initially won by late Senator John McCain. The winner could decide which party controls the senate.

“This is about power; this is about Chuck Schumer getting power and flipping the senate majority. Mark Kelly will be that 51st vote so don’t be fooled Arizonans.”

It is a close race. Mcsally says she will be fighting down to the wire.

“I’m going to be out fighting for every last vote until the polls close.”

Mcsally says she is one of the most bipartisan senators having worked across the aisle on a drought contingency plan and on veteran issues.

But for this election, McSally’s campaign appears to be focusing more on the choice between the two parties.

“I look for that common ground and that unity, but the bigger choice is very bright lines between freedom and opportunity and allowing the radical left to take over.”
