Democrat Kyrsten Sinema flips AZ senate seat

Kyrsten Sinema

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.

Sinema is the first Democratic U.S. Senator from Arizona since Dennis DeConcini retired in 1995.

I mean, what the f** a href="https://pjmedia.com/trending/arizona-democrat-kyrsten-sinema-calls-stay-at-home-moms-leeches/" *some feminists, and even the European Union, that women who don't work outside the home are a cultural problem.

Sinema's victory gives the Democrats two pick-ups in the 2018 midterms, as the race was for the spot being vacated by Republican Sen. She went on to get a job as a social worker, and earned a Ph.D. and a law license. The former Air Force combat pilot adopted an aggressive tone, accusing Sinema of supporting treason over her 2003 remark that it was "fine" if a radio host who was asking her a question joined the Taliban. Her victory is the first time a Democrat has won a U.S. Senate seat in Arizona in 30 years, and means Democrats will have at least 47 seats in the Senate-as results from Florida and MS remain uncalled.

Her opponent, McSally, 52, also a USA representative and a former Air Force fighter pilot, congratulated Sinema for winning the race. She nearly never criticized President Donald Trump, reminded voters she had voted with Trump 60 percent of the time, and supported tougher penalties against employers who knowingly hire non-citizens.

But we're getting it all worked out", he said assuring his supporters that he will work to end birthright citizenship . Nearly everyone present in the United States, even aliens, come within the jurisdiction of the United States.

Overall, a win for Ms Sinema would shrink the Republican gains in the Senate to 53-47 if the GOP wins the recount in Florida and the run-off election in Mississippi. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who has tangled with President Donald Trump and often criticizes the president's harsh rhetoric.

Not only is Sinema Arizona's first female U.S. Senator, she is also the first out bisexual U.S. Senator in the country.

Trump tweeted Friday that "electoral corruption" was taking place and suggested Arizona should have a new election. Apparently, the numbers were looking dismal enough that Congresswoman McSally chose to pull the plug last night and concede the election to her opponent.

She shifted to the centre after winning a seat in 2012 in the House of Representatives, drawing criticism from some on the left for siding with Mr Trump and other Republicans on some legislation. McSally argued that she would protect patients, despite her vote on the bill that would have removed many of those protections. Attack ads by both sides clogged the airwaves for months. She then became a Democrat and served several terms in the state Legislature. She ran unflattering ads of Sinema wearing a pink tutu from her activist years. She also was the first woman to command a fighter squadron, again in A-10s. But McSally came back to win the 2014 election, beating Barber by a narrow margin. One of her political mentors, Jon Kyl, was appointed in September to fill John McCain's seat after Arizona's senior senator died following a struggle against brain cancer. Mr Rohrabacher was one of most vocal supporters of Russian Federation and its President Vladimir Putin in Congress.
