Embattled interim Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) threw her support behind the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett for the U.S. Supreme Court.
McSally, who was appointed to the Senate after losing her 2018 election for Arizona's other Senate seat, is currently trailing former astronaut Mark Kelly in the polls and fundraising.
"Today, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Judge Amy Coney Barrett, whose grace and incredible command of the law are as evident in person as they were during her confirmation hearings. I look forward to voting in favor of her historic confirmation," McSally posted on Twitter with a photo of the two.
