Republican Congresswoman Martha McSally accused her opponent in the hotly contested U.S. Senate race in Arizona, Democratic U.S. Representative Kyrsten Sinema, of "being OK with treason" as the two faced off in their only debate. McSally has increasingly focused on Sinema's past as an antiwar protester and progressive activist to get an edge ahead of the Nov. 6 elections. Most recent opinion polls have shown the Democrat with a slight edge in the race for the seat held by retiring U.S. Senator Jeff Flake, a prominent Republican critic of President Donald Trump.
