AZ-SEN: Sinema Preparing Re-Election Bid as Independent [View all]

“Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, the De­mo­c­rat-turned-in­de­pen­dent, is pre­paring for a re-elec­tion cam­paign, set­ting the stage for what could be an un­pre­dictable three-way con­test in the highly com­pet­i­tive state,” the Wall Street Journal reports.

“A re-elec­tion cam­paign by Ms. Sinema would have im­pli­ca­tions for the bat­tle for the Sen­ate in 2024 and test whether a sen­a­tor who has spurned a tra­di­tional party iden­tity can build a win­ning cen­trist coali­tion. Ms. Sinema left the De­mo­c­ra­tic Party last year to be­come an in­de­pen­dent af­ter be­ing a reg­u­lar thorn in the side of De­mo­c­ra­tic lead­ers and pro­gres­sive ac­tivists. She still cau­cuses with the De­moc­rats, how­ever, and re­mains a piv­otal vote in the par­ty’s 51-49 ma­jor­ity.”
