NASA astronaut Mark Kelly launches Senate campaign

Retired US astronaut Mark Kelly plans to run for a US Senate seat in Arizona. Kelly’s wife Gabby Giffords stepped down from Congress after sustaining a serious head injury in a 2011 mass shooting and has since emerged as one of the leading voices of the US gun-control movement. Kelly will challenge Republican US Senator Martha McSally.

MM, military experience relates quite well, it used to be the norm to have retired military in Congress, we are currently at a historical low for Congressional seats filled with ex-military. The guy is on the right side of science and facts. Need more of that and less of science deniers, corporate hacks, and evangelicals.
