Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema Stuns Democrats By Announcing That She’s Leaving The Party

Senator Kyrsten Sinema just threw a massive wrench into the Democrats’ plans for the future.

She announced that she is leaving the Democrat party to become an independent.

And she did this right after they won Georgia, thinking that they had won the Senate majority.

The decision by Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona to leave the Democratic Party on Friday raised the prospect of a tumultuous — and expensive — three-way race in one of the most politically competitive states in the U.S. It set off a scramble among potential Democratic and Republican candidates to assess whether they could win their party’s nomination.

And it prompted difficult questions about whether Democrats might financially and politically support Sinema over their own nominee if she decides to seek reelection in 2024 and is seen as having the best chance of keeping the seat out of GOP hands.

Ultimately, Sinema’s move was a sobering reminder that while Democrats won an outright majority in the Senate this week, their grip on the chamber is still tenuous, giving individual members notable sway over the congressional agenda. And it foreshadowed the even more difficult climate ahead as Democrats defend seats in seven states, including Arizona, that former President Donald Trump carried at least once.

Liberals are absolutely furious about this.

This is absolutely hilarious.

Good for Sinema for doing what she thinks is right.
