Republican candidate Martha McSally has called on supporters to get out and vote in the U.S. Senate race in Arizona that she says has become a dead heat.

McSally, along with former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, reminded a crowd at a rally in the Phoenix suburb of Gilbert on Friday that a great deal was at stake in the Nov. 6 election.
    
The congresswoman is facing Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema.
    
McSally says the seat being vacated by Sen. Jeff Flake is "literally the firewall to make sure we keep and grow the Senate majority."
    
Romney said McSally represents the kind of leadership America needs.
    
McSally and Romney have mostly been supportive of President Donald Trump. But neither invoked his name during the 20-minute afternoon gathering attended by several hundred people.
    
Romney is heavily favored to win a Senate seat in Utah.
