Vulnerable Republican Sen. Martha McSally is attacking her Democratic opponent for supporting the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

McSally's first television ad of the election cycle began airing on Wednesday. It ties Democrat Mark Kelly to liberal members of Congress and the leaders of the Democratic efforts to impeach Trump and remove him from office. The ad also says Kelly is too liberal for Arizona.

Kelly said after the Senate trial that he would have voted to convict Trump of abuse of power and impeding the Congressional investigation. McSally said the president acted inappropriately but his actions were not impeachable.
