Sinema Closes Door on Senate

 

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema has announced she will not seek re-election this fall. She left the Democratic Party in 2022. Recent polling showed she was receiving more support from Republicans than Democrats.

In a social media post announcing her decision she lamented the hyper-partisan atmosphere in American politics.“It’s all or nothing,” she said. “The only political victories that matter these days are symbolic, attacking your opponents on cable news or social media.”

    I saw this today. I thought how terrible this was for Kari Lake – in a 3 way race she was winning with I think 46% of the vote … But without Krysten Sinema its tough sledding to win.

    I don’t Sinema’s withdrawal is relevant to Lake’s chances. Arizona is corrupt, election-wise.

    She is quite possibly a very good example of what is wrong with this country. She spends her Arizona legislative career as a very green, radical Democrat. Then she gets into the Senate and is basically a 70s Democrat. I’ve seen her give a lecture about how to get political power. It was pretty sophisticated, but I’m not sure what good it does anybody to be so unprincipled. I’m not an expert, but that is my opinion.

    I live in Arizona and have followed Sinema’s career since she was a law student attending a war protest wearing a pink tutu. When she was elected to congress, her big thing was being the first openly bisexual member of congress. She has a history of making an embarrassing spectacle of herself using foul language and dressing in bizarre attention seeking attire. I don’t believe her dropping out will harm Kari Lake.

    Make a list of people like this:

    Nicole Wallace. She sold out for money. 

    Joe Scarborough. Money and sex. He would have been 180° different on Fox News if they gave him a job.

    I can’t think of his name, but the senator from Arizona, that was a libertarian in the house, and then he couldn’t get reelected as a senator.

    What’s the deal with MeAgain Kelly? Didn’t she try to fit into one of the lefty MSMs?

    Arizona used to elect Republicans.   If Kari Lake can’t get elected in Arizona, the problem is Kari Lake.
