You are a Democratic senator in a purple state trying to take on a challenge from a strong Republican candidate.

You have taken a centrist position, carefully distancing yourself from an unpopular president and his policies on the economy and the border.

Then you will be asked on live TV if Joe Biden is doing well.

“Hey, you know…” Senator Mark Kelly said, looking like he’d squirm in his chair if he didn’t stand.

“You know… er… It’s not my job to give him a report. I’d say, you know, mixed reviews, you know, about certain things.’

During his appearance on CBS5 News, Kelly faced a barrage of questions about his thoughts on Biden.

And it didn’t go well, despite the obvious question.

Kelly said he didn't even see Biden's speech attacking MAGA Republicans, and wouldn't even commit to appearing with the president in Arizona during the campaign.

Kelly said he didn’t even see Biden’s speech attacking MAGA Republicans, and wouldn’t even commit to appearing with the president in Arizona during the campaign.

Kelly holds a small two-point lead over Trump-backed Republican challenger Blake Masters, according to a new Emerson College poll.

Biden is seen as an obligation by candidates across the country. His ratings have soared in the past month, but some have avoided public appearances with the president for fear his approach to the economy could cost them victory.

In recent weeks, he has gone on the offensive, taunting Donald Trump and Republicans who support strict abortion laws as “MAGA Republicans,” which could alienate some conservatives who think they are switching sides.

Kelly seemed to be on the defensive when host Dennis Welsh brought up that theme and Biden’s recent speech suggested that Trump-backed candidates posed a threat to democracy.

He was asked, “Do you agree with the president?”

“Well, I didn’t see the speech,” Kelly replied.

“I think the president has the right to express his opinion. I don’t share every opinion with our president.”

So what if Biden’s came to Arizona? Would Kelly campaign with him?

“I invite everyone to come here,” Kelly said.

“We have big problems in the state of Arizona. You know, the water crisis is something I’ve worked really hard on to get the billion dollars into the infrastructure bill for it; $4 billion in the Inflation Reduction Act to address the immediate needs of the crisis.

“So if someone comes to Arizona, I want to show them, you know, what we need from the federal government?”

Welsh urged him: And if he held an event here, would you attend that event?’

“Sure, I’d definitely consider it,” Kelly said.

“I mean, I could be in Washington, you know, voting on important legislation. I mean, that’s a possibility.’

Welsh continued: ‘But if you were free, would you like to go?’

“It would depend on what the event was where it was,” Kelly persisted. “And you know what the goal is.”

He provided at least something of a report on Biden’s performance.

“I’ve had problems with how Afghanistan ended,” he said.

“On the other hand, as chairman of the Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities… You know, I’ve worked very hard with this government to make sure the Ukrainians get the weapons and weapons systems they need to be effective. against the Russians…

“And I think the administration, you know, I would give them, you know, high marks.”
