Sen. Kyrsten Sinema Announces She Won’t Seek Reelection, Citing Political Climate

Date:

Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema will not seek reelection. An independent, Sinema cited the current political atmosphere when making her announcement on Tuesday in a video posted on social media.

“Because I choose civility, understanding, listening, working together to get stuff done, I will leave the Senate by the end of this year.”

Sinema won her seat in 2018 as a Democrat but announced she was leaving the party in 2022. Arizona’s seat could help change the landscape of the Senate, where Democrats hold a slim majority. Trump-backed Republican Kari Lake and Democrat Congressman Ruben Gallego are among the candidates vying for the seat.

Sinema says Americans are choosing to retreat further to their partisan corners.

“We’ve arrived at that crossroad and we chose anger and division. I believe in my approach, but it’s not what America wants right now.”
