Ah, Kyrsten Sinema.

Somehow, the Arizona senator has found her way into the headlines again. This time, it has to do with the supposed reelection strategy Sinema sent out as she navigates a 2024 campaign no longer listed as a Democrat, but as an independent.

Ronald J. Hansen with AZ Central writes:

“Sen. Kyrsten Sinema is pitching her still-undeclared campaign to prospective donors as built on overwhelmingly winning independent voters and siphoning more support from Republicans than Democrats.

Kyrsten Sinema could not care less about the people of Arizona, or the country for that matter. Her entire political career has been a slow, calculated climb to ensuring her own personal financial success to the detriment of everyone else, and this is just…
