The election of Senator Mark Kelly in 2020 helped Democrats earn a majority in the Senate, making the passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill and COVID-19 relief possible. In 2022, Sen. Kelly will be up for reelection and share the ballot with a critical gubernatorial race, as well as key races that will determine the majority in the House and state legislature.

Target Races in Arizona

What's at stake

Gun violence. According to the Giffords Law Center, Arizona receives an "F" rating for its gun safety laws, which are some of the weakest in the country. The gun death rate is 15.05 per 100,000, while Black Arizonians have a 117% higher gun death rate than the national average.

Voting rights. Following the 2020 election, Republicans in Arizona have been working around the clock to suppress and restrict voting. State Republicans have spent millions of taxpayer dollars on frivolous audits of the 2020 election results. In January 2022, Republicans introduced H.B. 2596, which would eliminate early voting and no-excuse mail-in voting.

Reproductive rights. Arizona has some of the nation’s most restrictive abortions laws, including a law which would outright ban abortions if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade. In early February, Republicans in the State Legislature advanced legislation which would effectively ban abortions after 15 weeks, similar to legislation passed in Mississippi.
