Ads promote and attack Blake Masters as AZ Dems call out the GOP Senate candidate

Arizona’s Republican nominee for U.S. Senate released his first campaign ad for the general election right after beating a crowded field of GOP candidates.

Arizona Democrats want to label Blake Masters as a dangerous and divisive alternative to Sen. Mark Kelly. The ad for Masters shows his wife saying the U.S. is on the wrong path, and Masters is running for Senate because he wants to help people thrive. 

“And he loves the state so much. He would make Arizona so proud,” said Catherine Masters.

The spot came out on the same day a Democratic super PAC in Washington, D.C., released their own ad attacking Masters for his views against abortion.

And on Thursday, State Democratic Party Chair Raquel Teran labeled Masters an extremist at a local news conference.  

“He ran to represent the far, far right and the far, far right only,” she said.

The Senate race in Arizona is expected to be among the most expensive in the country this year.
