Last night, Project Veritas’ James O’Keefe dropped a bombshell video that exposed Arizona Democrat Senate candidate, former astronaut, and outspoken gun control advocate, Mark Kelly, and his quiet plan to enact gun control if he can effectively defeat sitting US Senator Martha McSally (R).
O’Keefe tweeted the bombshell video, along with an explanation:
BREAKING PART 1: @CaptMarkKelly deceives AZ voters on true gun agenda “I don’t think he’s fully been out there saying like ‘I want a full gun control type measure” “Trying to be elected…then he’ll implement the (gun)measures” “I’m defaming my campaign right now”

Less than 24 hours after Kelly’s intent to enact gun control was revealed by a campaign official, three former astronauts, Tom Stafford, Charlie Duke, and Jack Lousma, are coming out in favor of Senator McSally in the upcoming special election, citing her list of tangible accomplishments versus Kelly, whose political agenda is largely unknown.
Townhall reports – “We remember a not-so-distant past when the Air Force wouldn’t let women fly in combat. Instead of sitting down accepting the status quo, McSally stood up, fought for change and made strides for generations of women to follow her,” astronauts Tom Stafford, Charlie Duke and Jack Lousma wrote in an OpEd recently published in The Arizona Central.
The astronauts say that while McSally has a record of accomplishments to point to, Kelly’s positions remain largely unknown. The three are accusing Kelly of hiding his left-wing agenda behind the word “astronaut.”
“But having ‘astronaut’ on your resume does not mean you’d be a good U.S. senator,” the astronauts write. “Mark Kelly is hoping Arizonans are so impressed with his background that they ignore the fact that he’s supported radical gun control activists, that his plan for the eventual government takeover of health care would end Medicare as we know it, and that he’d vote to raise our taxes.”
The astronauts argue that Kelly will answer to the radical policies of his party if elected to the Senate because his election would help Democrats take back control of the government.
“They’re planning on taking away the filibuster — the higher vote threshold to pass legislation — to push through their agenda over the objections of hundreds of millions of Americans. This is not hypothetical. Democrats laid out their strategy in plain sight,” the astronauts warn.
“McSally has delivered for Arizona, while Mark Kelly embraces Democrat ideology that would be bad for our country — leaving us with less freedoms, less security and less control of our lives.”
