Dear Senator McConnell,
On behalf of the Republican Party of Arizona, LLC, we ask for your support in winning the Arizona United States Senate seat race up for election in November. We are working tirelessly to unite the Party in Arizona to elect Republicans up and down the ballot, retire Nancy Pelosi, and take back the Senate. Arizona has the most competitive Senate race in the country. We welcome you to join our team to retire Mark Kelly and elect Blake Masters as the next Senator from Arizona.

Senator Kelly has abandoned Arizona entirely. During his short two years in office, he has voted with the Biden Administration 94% of the time. The people of Arizona are disappointed and disheartened by Mark’s lack of leadership and failed promise to be “an independent voice” for us.

The polling in the Senate race over the last few months shows voters becoming increasingly frustrated with him and searching for an alternative solution. Initially, Senator Kelly was up 12-points on Blake Masters. A few weeks later, the lead dropped to 8-points, last week dipped further to a narrow 3-point advantage, and last Friday revealed a new poll with Masters trailing by 2 points. The last two polls reveal a margin of a very winnable race.

It is clear Masters is within striking distance. However, Sen. Kelly has a war chest of $25 million cash on hand and has cultivated a smear campaign against Masters, reaching every inch of Arizona digitally and geographically. We are rapidly approaching the October 12 early ballot drop date in Arizona, and the majority of voters cast their vote within days of receiving their ballot.

We are running out of time! Blake and Arizona need all the support we can get. The state party
is using every avenue to ensure victory in November, from joint fundraising, direct voter contact,
coalitions, and messaging which highlights Sen. Kelly’s betrayal of Arizona voters and his unholy
alliance with the Biden Administration.

The trend in the polling shows our work is having a big effect and reaching influenceable voters. We believe if you were to shore up your support of Blake Masters publicly and financially, you would help him fend off the attacks, defeat Mark Kelly, and return the Arizona Senate seat into Republican hands.

We appreciate your consideration and look forward to working with you to save America.
