Mark Kelly Staffer Caught on Tape Admitting Campaign “Plays Both Sides” on Abortion to Win Over Undecided Voters
By Debra Heine
A staff member of Senator Mark Kelly’s re-election campaign was caught on hidden camera telling a Project Veritas Action (PVA) undercover journalist how she lies to obfuscate his position on policy issues like abortion.
In the undercover video, released on Tuesday, Evynn Bronson, Mission for Arizona Field Organizer for the Mark Kelly for Senate Campaign, explains how the Democrat has to “play both sides” in order to win over undecided voters.
“I would say [to pro-life voters that] Mark Kelly is pro-life, but also pro-keeping the government out of our healthcare. I don’t know, something stupid like that,” Bronson told the PVA journalist.
“I wouldn’t say [he is] pro-choice…even though he is,” she continued. “I’d go to something like, ‘You know, after his wife was in a shooting, he values life so much. It’s just a shame.’”
Bronson explained that Kelly “can’t be too far-left leaning otherwise that’ll scare away a lot of those independents, and that’s 40 percent.”
“Even though he’s not pro-life?” the undercover journalist probed.
“Absolutely he is not pro-life,” she replied, adding that he avoids saying so to remain viable with those undecided voters.
“He has to play both sides,” she explained. “Forty percent of the people voting are undecided whether or not they’re going to vote Republican or Democrat.”
Bronson added: “He is not going to say anything outright about what he’s going to do unless it will garner support from independents and some of the moderate Republicans.”
Bronson later noted that Kelly will not discuss on the campaign trail all of the “very liberal” policies he supports.
“He’s not going to say anything outright about what he’s going to do unless it will garner support from Independents and some of the moderate Republicans,” said Bronson.
“Because he needs them?” The Project Veritas journalist asked.
“Well, yeah, he needs them otherwise he won’t win,” Bronson replied.
The journalist continued to press, asking, “Oh, so if he’s outright said it then he wouldn’t win?”
“It would scare people away, yeah,” Bronson acknowledged.
The journalist later asked Bronson what issues she avoids in order to tempt Republicans to vote for Mark Kelly.
“I wouldn’t say—I wouldn’t say pro-choice, even though he is,” Bronson said, who later said that Blake Masters, the Republican Senate candidate, “believes that the election was a fraud,” calling it as “crazy, crazy, crazy far-right conspiracy as you can get.”
“So it’s just like, look at the alternatives and they’re not super beautiful,” Bronson said.
Kelly is in a tight race with Masters, with about a 2.5 point edge in the polls, according to the RealClearPolitics average.

How Not to Vote in Arizona
The 2022 midterm election is fast approaching. The system for voting in Arizona is predominantly by mail-in ballots (around 80% of all ballots).The ballots will be mailed out to all voters registered for mail-in voting on October 12th. The actual ‘day’ of the election is Tuesday November 8th..
Once upon a time when all voters went to the polls on the day of election, the tabulated results were announced the night of the election date. If the result of a specific race was razor thin and less than a legislated margin, a recount might prevent the naming of a winner. That was the exception for calling the results of the election. We at The Prickly Pear are very concerned about the flaws in Arizona’s predominant ‘mail-in’ voting system.
Please click on the red TAKE ACTION link below to learn How Not to Vote in Arizona as a mail-in ballot voter and to be certain your vote is included in the count the evening of November 8th.
