Arizona has rejected petty political attacks, says Democrat Kyrsten Sinema

Arizona has rejected petty political attacks, says Democrat Kyrsten Sinema

There was widespread speculation that Kyl would step aside and Arizona's Republican Governor would name McSally to the role. On the other hand, McSally was hurt by her vote to strip people of coverage for pre-existing conditions, something she tried to deny.

For now, the win in Arizona means that Democrats have narrowed GOP gains in the Senate to only one seat so far - Republicans defeated incumbents in North Dakota, Indiana and Missouri, but Democrats flipped seats in Nevada and now Arizona.

Sinema has a record of working across party lines during her time in the House of Representatives voting 48.8 percent of the time, according to FiveThirtyEight.com, with the position supported by President Donald Trump, a Republican. Democratic lawmaker Kyrsten Sinema is expected to move her office from the House, where she is now, to the Senate. Nearly a week later, a victor still has not been officially declared; however, Sinema is maintaining her lead of about 32,000 votes (some 1.5%) in the polls over McSally.

McSally issued a video concession Monday after AP called the race for Sinema.

The Associated Press called the race for Sinema late Monday.

But Republicans had hit her over her more liberal past when she was a state lawmaker, including for her anti-war stances and past protests. Reps for Sinema say McSally would need to dominate the outstanding ballots in Maricopa to regain a lead, which is "not plausible", meaning Sinema's victory is inevitable: "Kyrsten will be declared the next U.S. Senator from Arizona".




Sinema and McSally are battling for Jeff Flake's Senate seat.

Sinema's win follows years of Democratic shutouts at the statewide level in Arizona and shows that the longtime Republican bastion is becoming a swing state. "She wanted McSally to pay for Trump", Lah explained.

McCain's historic thumbs down vote on the Republican attempt to pass a "skinny repeal" bill that would have permanently repealed the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate and other provisions was one example of his effort to work with the opposition. She will be the first openly bisexual senator in history, as well as the first woman to ever serve as a senator from Arizona.

Ms Sinema started out in politics as a liberal activist and spokeswoman for the Green Party.

McSally is the first female U.S. Air Force pilot to fly in combat.

Flake was an outspoken critic of Trump and announced in 2017 that he would not seek re-election, acknowledging he could not win a GOP primary in the current political climate.
