McSally Takes Kyl’s Seat in the Senate / by AzHHA

Less than four months of being appointed as state Senator, Jon Kyl announced that he will resign his Senate seat effective December 31st. This is not unexpected news as he had committed to serve until the end of the year upon his appointment in September. After months of speculation Governor Doug Ducey recently announced that Martha McSally, who narrowly lost the race for the state’s other U.S. Senate seat in November, would take the Senate seat along with Kyrsten Sinema. McSally and Sinema will serve alongside each other after facing off in one of the most contentious and expensive Senate races in Arizona’s history.
