Washington, D.C. – Mark Kelly is up to his old tricks again, saying one thing in Arizona while doing the opposite in D.C. In a recent interview Mark Kelly admitted that Yuma needs a border wall – despite the fact that he voted against a border wall three times this year.

Mark Kelly: “We need to deal with some of the gaps in the border fencing in the Yuma area…”

Will Mark Kelly finally admit he regrets his efforts to fuel Arizona’s border crisis?

Statement from NRSC Spokeswoman Katharine Cooksey: “Mark Kelly is now meeting the consequences of his own actions. Kelly had every opportunity to address Arizona’s border crisis; instead, he voted three times in 2021 to defund construction of the border wall. He’s become what he campaigned against: a liberal politician who says one thing in Arizona but does the opposite when Democrat party leaders in Washington tell him to.”
