Captain 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 is running to unseat unelected Sen Martha McSally in one of the most watched elections of 2020. This toss-up race is the one of the top pickup opportunities for Democrats in 2020 after Martha McSally narrowly lost the 2018 Senate race and was appointed to the seat. Mark was 314 Action’s first endorsement of the 2020 cycle and we are proud to have raised over $1.3 million directly for his campaign.
