Republicans attack Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly in a Spanish-language ad

The Republican campaign committee in the Senate attacks Senator Mark Kelly of Arizona in a new Spanish-language television commercial that blinds the Democrat to the needs of his Latin American voters.

Mr. Kelly is considered vulnerable in the midterm elections of 2022, and the fate of his re-election bid will largely determine whether Republicans can turn control over the upper house.

“When he was elected, Mark Kelly said he wanted to work for us, but what has he accomplished?” says the narrator in the National Republican Senatorial Committee announcement. “A crisis at the border, more insecurity in our communities, higher prices for everything, and now he wants to deprive us of our rights as parents over our children’s education.”

The narrator adds: “Many Latin Americans pay for Mark Kelly’s mistake.”

The GOP is betting that if it can make inroads with Latin American voters in Arizona next year, then it will narrow Mr. Kelly’s road to victory.

The TV ad is running in the media markets of Phoenix and Tucson. NRSC targeted Mr. Kelly in Spanish-language radio commercials last month.

Attorney General Mark Brnovich, retired Major General of the Air Force Michael McGuire and businessmen Blake Masters and Jim Lamon are running for the Republican nomination and the chance to receive Mr. Kelly in the general election.

The latest poll from OH Predictive Insights shows Mr. Kelly leads in hypothetical head-to-head matchups against all four of the Republicans.

Last year, President Biden became the first Democrat to carry Arizona in a presidential election since Bill Clinton won the state in 1996.

Democratic Senator Kyrsten Sinema won his seat there in the 2018 election, and Mr. Kelly won the special election last year to fill the remaining term for the late Republican Senator John McCain.

Mr. Kelly defeated Republican Senator Martha McSally by a margin of 51% -49%. He is now running for a full six-year term.
