PHOENIX (AP) — Democratic Senate candidate Mark Kelly is releasing his first campaign ad of the 2020 election.
The minute-long ad began airing early Thursday to introduce the retired astronaut and political newcomer to Arizona voters.
Kelly takes to the airwaves a week after Republican incumbent Martha McSally began airing her own ads attacking him as “too liberal for Arizona” and seeking to tie him to left-wing Democrats.
Kelly's commercial shows him wearing a black T-shirt and working on a motorcycle. He says he hopes Arizona can have an environment where anybody can accomplish anything they want if they work hard at it.

If you told me when I was 16 that I’d reach my dream of being a Navy pilot and astronaut, I wouldn’t have believed you. Now, my hope for Arizona is that everybody gets a chance to achieve their own American dream. pic.twitter.com/FB3dC91Vq6
