Super PAC Pumping Money Into Southern Arizona To Defend Martha McSally Seat

Martha McSally.

Arizona’s 2nd congressional district is bound to bring a lot of attention — and huge financial contributions — to the southern part of the state in 2018.

Republican incumbent Martha McSally easily won reelection last year, but the district is closely divided among Republicans, Democrats and independents.

A Super PAC known as the Congressional Leadership Fund has decided to do more than just pump money into the district in support of McSally. It’s actually opening a field office in Tucson. Could we see more of this across the country in the 2018 election cycle?

Kyle Kondik, of the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics, talked about the issue.
