Kyrsten Sinema, Martha McSally take part in ASU game ahead of kickoff
PHOENIX — Two familiar faces to Arizonans were out front and center before the Arizona State football game against Utah.
Rep. Martha McSally and Rep. Kyrsten Sinema took part in the pregame festivities at ASU’s homecoming on Saturday.
McSally sang the national anthem in one of the end zones, something she has done at past events.
Sinema headed out to midfield as she conducted the coin toss between the two teams.

With Election Day right around the corner, both candidates are continuing to push for votes as the race to replace Republican Jeff Flake’s seat in the U.S. Senate has been a tight one.
A majority of polls have had Sinema leading McSally, but within the polls’ margins of error.
A recent NBC/Marist poll showed that Sinema held a six-point lead over McSally, but when the ballot options included third-party candidate Angela Green, her lead fell back to three points.
Green, however, has dropped out of the race, opting to endorse Sinema.
A OH Predictive Insights/ABC15 poll found McSally in the lead with seven points, leading 52 percent to 45 percent in the survey of likely voters.
