Democratic Senate candidate Mark Kelly on Friday criticized President Trump’s treatment of Kelly’s opponent, Sen. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), calling it “unfortunate.”

Trump had rushed McSally during an Arizona rally this week to finish her remarks, telling her she had one minute to talk and to be quick.

“They don’t want to hear this Martha, come on let’s go,” he said as McSally took the stage to speak.

“The President of the United States should have respect for an Arizona senator,” Kelly, a former astronaut and McSally’s Democratic challenger, told MSNBC.

McSally brushed off the incident when asked about her reaction to his behavior by reporters.

“Give me a break,” McSally said, according to the Arizona Republic. “President Trump will be President Trump, and I’m fighting with him to save the country.”

Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden are running neck and neck in the battleground state, while McSally is trailing slightly behind Kelly, according to RealClearPolitics.
