Former President George W. Bush and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney are headed to Arizona to throw their support behind the Republican candidate for Senate, who faces a difficult election, Arizona Republic reports.
Rep. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., is currently running to replace retiring Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., in November, and is locked in a close race with Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema. According to RealClearPolitics, Sinema holds a small, less than 2 percent, average lead.
Romney, who is currently running for Senate himself in Utah, will join McSally as a special guest in Gilbert, Arizona on Friday. Romney, who is Mormon, will headline a rally in East Valley, an area with a large Mormon population.
Bush will host a private breakfast fundraiser for McSally next week in Scottsdale, Arizona. Western Journal notes that much of Scottsdale is located within Sinema’s district.
McSally already received an endorsement from President Donald Trump in August, and the president, who won Arizona by 3.5 percent in 2016, will campaign with the congresswoman later this month.
