The Associated Press (AP) declared far-left Democrat Kyrsten Sinema the winner of Arizona’s tightly contested Senate race against Republican Rep. Martha McSally.
“The three-term congresswoman won after a slow vote count that dragged on for nearly a week after voters went to the polls on Nov. 6,” the AP reported. “She becomes Arizona’s first Democratic U.S. senator since 1994. Her win cemented Arizona as a swing state after years of Republican dominance.”
In the moments following the AP’s call, McSally called Sinema and congratulated her on her victory and released the following video on her official Senate campaign Twitter account:
While Sinema tried to cast herself as a centrist during the campaign and with some of her votes in Congress, an undercover sting video from James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas revealed that those who are close to her describe her as “very liberal,” adding that “she’s progressive.”
At one point in her political career, Sinema fought “to protect criminals who had sex with child prostitutes and later took tens of thousands of dollars from the founders of an alleged sex trafficking website.”
In September, The Daily Wire reported, “Sinema smeared U.S. soldiers serving in Iraq and the Middle East in 2003 while she led a far-left activist group that passed out flyers portraying American soldiers as skeletons committing ‘U.S. terror.'”
Also in 2003, 17 months after 9/11, while U.S. soldiers were dying overseas, Sinema said that she did not care if Americans wanted to go overseas and fight for the Taliban.
In early October two stories about Sinema’s past made national headlines after it was revealed that she “promoted events at Arizona State University that featured attorney Lynn Stewart, who was convicted for aiding Omar Abdel Rahman, who himself was charged and sentenced to life for scheming to blow up the United Nations, an FBI building, two tunnels, and a bridge in New York City.”
Sinema also equated the deaths of American soldiers with illegal aliens unlawfully entering the United States.
Sinema has repeatedly slammed her home state, warning at one speech in 2010 that Arizona should serve as a warning for the rest of the U.S.:
One of the reasons I think it’s so important to share the story of my Arizona with others around the country is to serve as a warning symbol for each of you to take note about your changing communities. For if you choose not to acknowledge the changing nature of your community and allow instead extremists to fill the space that is created by the natural movement of change then Arizona could also be your future.
The Arizona State Troopers Association withdrew its endorsement of Sinema in late October after her far-left views were exposed.
