PHOENIX — If there was any question that Arizona’s 2020 Senate race would be one of the nation’s hottest, it was answered this past week with an emphatic “yes” when second-quarter Federal Election Commission reports were released.

Republican incumbent Sen. Martha McSally and her likely Democratic challenger, Mark Kelly, reported raising a total of just under $13.9 million in the first six months of this year and had a combined $10.3 million on hand for an election that’s still 16 months away.

“We’re going to have a front row seat to one of the most competitive races in the country,” Arizona political consultant Michael Noble said of the Senate race.

Inside Elections rates Arizona as one of two "toss-up" Senate races next year, along with Colorado Republican Sen. Cory Gardner's defense of his seat.
