MISS INDEPENDENT: Sinema Ditches Dems, Registers as Independent

posted by Hannity Staff - 12.09.22

Just days after Raphael Warnock’s senate runoff win in Georgia, giving democrats a 51-49 majority, Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema has announced she is leaving the Democratic Party; Sinema wrote an op-ed explanation.

“Americans are told that we have only two choices – Democrat or Republican – and that we must subscribe wholesale to policy views the parties hold, views that have been pulled further and further toward the extremes,” Synema wrote in the op-ed.

“Most Arizonans believe this is a false choice, and when I ran for the U.S. House and the Senate, I promised Arizonans something different,” she continued. “I pledged to be independent and work with anyone to achieve lasting results. I committed I would not demonize people I disagreed with, engage in name-calling, or get distracted by political drama.”

“When politicians are more focused on denying the opposition party a victory than they are on improving Americans’ lives, the people who lose are everyday Americans.,” Sinema wrote in the op-ed.

Sinema elaborated in a Twitter thread —and shared a video:

“In a natural extension of my service since I was first elected to Congress, I have joined the growing numbers of Arizonans who reject party politics by declaring my independence from the broken partisan system in Washington and formally registering as an Arizona Independent.”
