Does Sinema Win Point to a Democratic Arizona?

Does Sinema Win Point to a Democratic Arizona?

The three-term congresswoman won after a slow vote count that dragged on for almost a week after voters went to the polls on November 6.

Democrat Rep. Kyrsten Sinema has officially won Arizona's open Senate seat, nearly a week after the midterm congressional elections, reducing Republicans' net gain in the chamber to a single seat.

It is the first time a Democrat has held a Senate seat in Arizona since 1995, and ensures the Democrats will fill at least 47 of the Senate's 100 seats, with Florida's race going to a recount and MS awaiting the results of a run-off later this month.

"I think it's over", said Chuck Coughlin, a veteran Republican strategist in the state, crediting Democrats' turnout operation, particularly among early voters. 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. "These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they're choosing to live that life", she claimed "That's bulls***".

Kyrsten Sinema marks a lot of firsts...

McSally tweeted her congratulations and said: "I wish her success".

In fact, her 54,000-vote lead over Republican Frank Riggs is larger than the one that Sinema had over McSally. Arizona law requires the Governor to appoint someone from the same party to the seat - Ms. McSally could still end up being a Senator next year.

Crude oil is doing something it hasn't done in years
Front-month Brent crude oil futures were at $77,18 a barrel at 0518 GMT, down 16 cents, or 0,2 percent, from their last close. US sanctions on Iranian crude oil exports would take effect on November 4, prompting more countries to cut imports from Iran.

Ms. Sinema started out in politics as a liberal activist and spokeswoman for the Green Party. McSally argued that she would protect patients, despite her vote on the bill that would have removed many of those protections. Last week, Trump mocked Flake and boasted about retiring him, telling reporters at a post-election news conference, "I'm very proud of it; I did the country a great service". "She wanted McSally to pay for Trump", Lah explained. Attack ads by both sides clogged the airwaves for months. McSally is a retired Air Force colonel and was the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat.

Sinema, a member of the centrist Blue Dog caucus in the House, had campaigned as a moderate. Gabby Giffords after she was wounded in a 2011 assassination attempt.

Even without a final resolution to the race, Scott was heading to Capitol Hill to prepare to become a Senator in January.

Kyl said he'd only serve through January 3, which would mean the state's Republican governor, Doug Ducey, would get to select another senator.

McSally's campaign and state-level GOP officials ignored national Republicans' tactics of casting doubt on the election's results.

Flake was an outspoken critic of Trump and announced in 2017 that he would not seek re-election, acknowledging he could not win a GOP primary in the current political climate.
