With Arizona's two Senate seats having flipped from two never-Trumpers to Democrats in recent years, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-Ariz., told Newsmax TV it is time for him to weigh a run to return at least one seat to the Republican Party.
"I'm kicking the tires," Biggs, chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, told Tuesday's "John Bachman Now." "You've got to do your homework, talk to a lot of people. I think that Arizona is more center-right than our current state of Sen. Mark Kelly."
Kelly, D-Ariz., won a special election over former Sen. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., and will finish the last two years of the term of the late Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who was a leader of the never-Trump faction of the Republican Party.
"[Kelly] seems like a nice guy, but I mean, he wants to take away guns — speaking of guns and the Second Amendment, he wants to take away guns," Biggs told host John Bachman after discussing Democrat hypocrisy under House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
"He supported Bernie Sanders, so you know that he doesn't support a lot of lower taxes and less regulation. He's more for redistribution in the economy, those types of things."
In the other Arizona Senate seat sits Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., who took over for noted former President Donald Trump rival ex-Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.
Biggs, is squarely behind the Trump vision, having been a staunch supporter for the former president, including backing a number of challenges after the past presidential election. Biggs would like to help turn one of Arizona's Senate seats to a Republican, instead of the progressive policies of Democrats.
"I think Arizona's different than that," Biggs concluded. "I think it's a center-right state, and someone is going to look into that, and I'm going to."
