There are only TWO competitive special elections for Congress this year and we have two incredible Democratic scientists running in both the Texas and New Mexico special elections. BUT: Early voting is already underway in Texas and about to begin in New Mexico. Please, rush in a donation toward our Special Election Fund to power Melanie Stansbury and Shawn Lassiter to VICTORY in these special elections.
Senator Mark Kelly is an engineer and NASA astronaut. A graduate of the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy and the U.S. Naval Postgraduate school, Mark is also a retired naval aviator and deployed during the Gulf War and in Operation Desert Storm.
As an astronaut who has spent nearly two months in space, including aboard the International Space Station and the Space Shuttle Endeavor, Mark knows the importance of facts and evidence in everyday decision making. Mark and his wife, former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, live in Tucson.
Mark was 314 Action’s first endorsement of the 2020 cycle, and we are proud to have raised over $2.6 million directly for his campaign to elect him to his first term.
Mark is running to protect his seat after defeating Martha McSally in one of the most watched elections of 2020. This race is a top battleground in the 2022 U.S. Senate elections as anti-science Republicans try to hand the chamber’s majority back to Mitch McConnell. Join us and donate to Mark’s campaign today to keep this seat blue.
