Martha McSally cruises into general election Senate showdown with Mark Kelly

As expected, Arizona’s two well-financed U.S. Senate candidates officially advanced to the general election Tuesday with landslide victories in afterthought primary contests.

Democrat Mark Kelly faced only write-in candidates, while incumbent Republican Sen. Martha McSally easily dispatched a challenge from right-wing Phoenix-area businessman Daniel McCarthy.

Expect the two former combat pilots to saturate the Arizona airwaves over the next three months, thanks to two of the nation’s largest campaign war chests and an avalanche of ads from outside groups.

McCarthy ran a mostly self-financed, $350,000 campaign that featured yard signs, radio ads and loud accusations that McSally was ducking him. In the end, though, he didn’t pose much of a threat. More than three-quarters of Republican voters chose McSally over McCarthy, according to unofficial results Tuesday night.
