McCarthy, meanwhile, sought to cast himself as the more reliable conservative in the race, while hammering McSally for her loss to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema in Arizona's 2018 Senate race.

McSally ultimately maintained the backing of President Trump and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC). With the nomination shored up, she is expected to face Kelly in one of the closest-watched Senate races of the 2020 election cycle.

McSally enters the general election fight in a particularly vulnerable place. Kelly leads in nearly every recent poll and has a yawning financial advantage. His most recent Federal Election Commission (FEC) filings showed him with nearly $24 million in the bank. McSally, by comparison, reported less than half of that.

Arizona is among a handful of states that Democrats are targeting this year as part of their bid to recapture a majority in the Senate. The party is also looking to flip GOP-held seats in Colorado, Maine, North Carolina and Montana, among others.

But McSally's seat may just be the most vulnerable. It's the only one that The Cook Political Report currently puts in its lean Democrat column.

Republicans haven't written off McSally yet. They argue that Kelly has yet to be fully vetted as a candidate and have sought to weaken him by attacking his business record. Republicans have also tried to tie him to the so-called "radical Left" factions in the Democratic Party.
