Kyrsten Sinema Leaves the Democratic Party


Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) “is changing her party affiliation to independent, delivering a jolt to Democrats’ narrow majority and Washington along with it,” Politico reports.

Sinema said “that she will not caucus with Republicans and suggested that she intends to vote the same way she has for four years in the Senate.”

“Provided that Sinema sticks to that vow, Democrats will still have a workable Senate majority in the next Congress, though it will not exactly be the neat and tidy 51 seats they assumed. They’re expected to also have the votes to control Senate committees.”

Said Sinema: “Nothing will change about my values or my behavior.”

Sinema explains her switch in the Arizona Republic.
