Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is Running for U.S. Senate

Republican Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced today that he is running for U.S. Senate in the 2022 election, but he's doing it without Trump's blessing.

If Brnovich makes it through the Republican primary election, he will go up against incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Kelly, who successfully ousted former Republican Senator Martha McSally in the 2020 election. His announce comes a day after Michael "Mick" McGuire, the former general of the Arizona National Guard, announced his own bid to run as a Republican. Over a dozen other Republicans seeking the Senate seat have filed statements of interest with the Arizona Secretary of State.

Brnovich, who was first elected as attorney general in 2014 and won his bid for reelection in 2018, has been positioning himself for his Senate run for months. He has taken on the Biden administration in the media and in court over its changes to federal immigration policy, including lawsuits against the president's moves to halt construction of the border wall and pause deportations of certain undocumented immigrants. In April, Brnovich visited the borderlands with Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb in a made-for-media moment to play up the increasing number of migrants attempting to cross the southern border. He also recently got food delivery services like DoorDash to agree not to offer discounts for Black-owned businesses in a settlement agreement and filed a lawsuit against Google over its data-collection practices.

In an announcement video posted to Twitter earlier today, Brnovich struck similar notes. He said that he's fought against "government overreach" and "woke corporations." He claimed that he's stood up for "election integrity," securing the border, and religious liberty.
