Activists who helped elect Kyrsten Sinema launch CrowdPAC to fund a primary challenger
A committee of Arizona organizers who have helped turn the state blue since 2018, when Sinema narrowly won her seat, launched the conditional fundraiser to pressure the senator to stop undermining her party's agenda. Sinema opposes the Democrats' $3.5 trillion spending bill, balking at both the price tag and key measures like drug pricing reform and tax hikes on the wealthy and corporations. She has also vehemently defended the filibuster, which has prevented any progress on the Democrats' voting rights legislation as well as a minimum wage increase, immigration reform, gun violence measures, police reform, LGBTQ protections, protections for workers' right to unionize and other bills that have already passed the Democratic-led House.
"It's time to send a message that she can't ignore," the group's CrowdPAC page says. "Either Sen. Sinema votes to end or reform the Jim Crow filibuster this year or we fund a primary challenge to replace her with someone who will."
State Sen. Martin Quezada, a Democrat who is backing the effort, told Salon that for sitting lawmakers, "the only thing that really gets you motivated to start seriously considering changing your views on things is if you are facing a threat to your seat."
If Senator Sinema does not support President Biden's Agenda, and continues to work with McConnell to help create a fascist United States, she has less than zero chance of being re-elected in 2024. Her political career will be over, permanently, and she'll end up curtsying to sexist RW pigs at lobbying firms, in her desperate searches to gain employment, until she gives up and accepts a position as spokesperson for the Log Cabin Republicans.
I can only conclude that her objective is to line her pockets
"I think you're a fascist-enabling pig and fraudulent 'democrat' that I will never vote for and will fight to replace. Now... can we sit down for ten minutes so I can tell you how I would like you to vote?"
told her in no uncertain terms how I'd like her to vote.
As I did in my email to her. Her reply indicated to me that she was one of the following: A) Ignorant, or B) Stupid or C) Fundamentally dishonest with regard to her knowledge of how her obstruction of President Biden's agenda would have a permanent negative affect on the course of both the Democratic party and democracy in the United States.
Sounds good, but it seems that if they push her too hard she could simply switch to the GQP and then Moscow Mitch becomes majority leader, no ?
crew to start using more and more. Re-brand the repugs as fascist.
She is dead meat in a general election. She needs to be replaced in a primary.
accumulated from decades of toeing the conservative line in Washington. She has no credibility left and appears to be rapidly destroying her chances of re-election.
Worked tirelessly to get this idiot elected and donated the max to her campaign.
It is sad that she wasted the last part of her life for this loser.
can certainly win in Arizona. Its a purple state, turning more blue by the year. Its not like the Manchin situation in West Virginia.
considering that the biggest complaint is her unwillingness to support the reconciliation bill.
And is more moderate than I think progressives would be happy with as their choice.
What people are really complaining about here is that Sinema and Manchin actually say what their positions are. Theyre not alone.
