We just launched the largest effort in U.S. history to recruit and support Democratic scientists in the biggest races of the midterms. We're targeting 67 Federal and statewide races: 7 GOP-held Senate seats, 39 GOP-held House seats, 10 Governor's races, and 11 statewide races. But we need to raise $100,000 in the next 72 hours to kick-off this effort: Can we count on you to donate to reach this goal so we can make anti-science Republicans pay a political price?
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.
