DNC on Appointment of Martha McSally to John McCain’s Senate Seat

DNC Chair Tom Perez released the following statement after Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey appointed Rep. Martha McSally, who recently lost her Senate race, to serve the remainder of Sen. John McCain’s term:


“Arizona voters rejected Martha McSally. They rejected her plan to take health care away from millions of Americans. They rejected her record of putting wealthy corporations ahead of hardworking families. But now Governor Ducey is ignoring the voice of the people and forcing McSally’s disastrous judgment on Arizonans. Democrats beat McSally in 2018. We’ll do it again in 2020.”
