I lived most of life in Arizona and still have lots of family and friends in my beloved home state and none of them voted for Democrat Kyrsten Sinema.
Many of my contacts in Arizona still believe that Sinema is an anti-American activist who committed treason by taking the sides of the Taliban over US Troops.
She has also been an outspoken critic of American capitalism, along with being a supporter of abortion, LGBTQ rights, gun control, Obamacare.
They all voted for Republican Martha McSally, a true American patriot, who just conceded the Senate seat of Sinema.
Fox News – Republican U.S. Rep. Martha McSally conceded Arizona’s U.S. Senate race to Democratic Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema on Monday after the latest vote count showed McSally trailing by more than 38,000 votes out of more than 2.2 million ballots cast.
“Congrats to @kyrstensinema. I wish her success,” McSally tweeted from her official campaign account. “I’m grateful to all those who supported me in this journey. I’m inspired by Arizonans’ spirit and our state’s best days are ahead of us.”
“As long as I’ve served Arizona, I’ve worked to help others see our common humanity & find common ground,” Sinema tweeted soon after McSally conceded. “That’s the same approach I’ll take to representing our great state in the Senate, where I’ll be an independent voice for all Arizonans…
Sinema will replace Jeff Flake in January and from everything I’ve seen of Flake since the election of President Donald Trump, having a Democrat in his seat really won’t make that big of a difference.
Flake was a RINO in the truest sense of the term, as he regularly opposed President Trump and many of his policies.
Flake was against Trump’s efforts to build a border wall, secure the border and prevent illegal aliens from entering the country.
When Flake announced he was not running for re-election, many in Arizona were excited to be rid of him, but having Sinema in his place is really not much different.
