There’s an old saying in politics which claims you get the government you deserve. It would appear Arizona is doing just that, as Arizona-hating leftist Kyrsten Sinema has won the U.S. Senate seat.
The prolonged Arizona Senate election is Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema’s to lose as incoming mail-in ballots continue to trend in her direction.
Following a dump of new mail-in ballots Sunday, Sinema expanded her lead over GOP Rep. Martha McSally — with Sinema now leading by 32,292 votes, or 1.5 percentage-points. Her campaign is declaring it would be impossible at this point for McSally to swing the election.
McSally was not a great candidate – she’s a John McCain “conservative” – but Synema has continually attacked and insulted Arizona and its people. Why would you run for office in a state you despise?
However, McSally’s camp is holding out hope, pointing out that thousands more ballots remain to be counted. There are estimated to be well over 200,000 votes left to tally. Arizona — a state where 75 percent of votes are cast by mail-in ballot — traditionally witnesses slow-paced election results.
Most of you know how much I love Arizona. It was on my short list for retirement spots. No longer. Arizona is trending blue, and when the state elects such a despicable woman to the Senate, you know it’s time to look elsewhere.
