There have been nearly 75,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in Arizona.

When it comes to the Senate race, opinions on physically returning to the campaign trail differ.

Republican Sen. Martha McSally held a campaign event in Scottsdale earlier this month when she signed copies of her new memoir and offered tacos and “Martha-ritas.” 

It was her first time meeting voters in person since pausing physical campaign events in mid-March. Organizers told The Arizona Republic they did offer face masks and hand sanitizer at the event, as well as markings helping attendees stay six feet apart. 

However, McSally’s opponent, Democrat Mark Kelly, has yet to return to in-person campaign events due to safety concerns. His spokesman said Kelly will continue to hold virtual events for the time being.
