Candidates Debate in Historic Race for US Senate

Voters will elect Arizona's first female senator.

In their first and only televised debate, U.S. Senate candidates Republican Martha McSally and Democrat Kyrsten Sinema met in Phoenix at a forum hosted by Arizona PBS. During the hour-long debate, they offered opposing responses on questions about health care and immigration. The two also accused one another of running negative campaigns.

The race has captured national attention, with most polls showing the candidates neck and neck. It also has historic significance because the winner will become Arizona's first female senator.
