Retired astronaut Mark Kelly on Tuesday said he will run for a Senate seat in his adopted home state of Arizona, giving Democrats an early chance at a seat they have not held since the late Sen. Carl Hayden (D) retired in 1969.

Kelly spent more than 54 days in space across three NASA missions. He has turned to politics in the years since his wife, former Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D), survived an assassination attempt in a 2011 mass shooting that claimed the lives of six others.

Since the 2017 collapse of the V.C. Summer nuclear project – which the Legislature made possible through a quietly passed law 10 years earlier – lawmakers and state utility regulators collectively have spent at least $729,000 on consultants hired to give them advice or issue reports.

The total includes $379,203 this fiscal year paid by the House and Senate chambers to Virginia-based ICF. The consulting firm released a report earlier this month on proposals by unidentified potential buyers to purchase all or parts of state-owned Santee Cooper, the minority partner with South Carolina Electric & Gas in the failed $9 billion nuclear project.
