Kyrsten Sinema Defeats Martha McSally In Arizona Senate Race
Daily Caller ^ | November 12, 2018 | Jason Hopkins

Posted on 11/12/2018 5:37:26 PM PST by Morgana

Democratic congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema has emerged victorious in Arizona’s hotly contested Senate battle, helping her party make gains in the upper chamber of Congress.

Following a hotly contested race where both candidates lead in differing polls, Sinema — Arizona’s 9th Congressional District representative — has defeated Republican congresswoman Martha McSally after nearly a week since Election Day.

The back-and-forth election saw both candidates take the lead at different times before the November elections. McSally trailed Sinema for much of the beginning of the campaign, but saw her numbers rise after Sinema — a former activist against the Iraq and Afghanistan war — dealt with numerous embarrassing headlines emanating from her past.

McSally originally led in the vote count. However, Sinema was able to rack up mail-in votes following Election, eventually surpassing her Republican opponent.

Before becoming a U.S. representative, Sinema was involved in numerous protests against the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, with some of her past actions resurfacing. In 2003, a group she co-founded distributed flyers that depicted U.S. soldiers as skeletons. During a radio interview in 2003, Sinema is on record saying she didn’t care if Americans took up arms to join the Taliban.

McSally, on the other-hand, was fiercely attacked for her vote in the House to repeal Obamacare, a law she has long criticized.

“Well, Sean, I did vote to repeal and replace Obamacare on that House bill — I’m getting my ass kicked for it right now because it’s being misconstrued by the Democrats,” McSally said in an interview with Sean Hannity in late October. The Human Rights Campaign 2018 Los Angeles Gala Dinner - Show

The Real Clear Politics average of polls gave McSally a one-point lead in the run up to Election Day. While all within the margin-of-error, three of the latest surveys included the RCP average showed McSally ahead.

The Associated Press called the election on Monday night.

McSally took to Twitter to concede and thanked her supporters.

So it is time to start being anti Sinema in a nice way. I just cannot believe people heard the truth about her.

Republican Governor won by 325,000 but McSally lost by 32,000? Something fishy here.

McS knows how Arizona’s voting works.

In 2012, she led on the election day, and lost on the post-election vote by mail count.

In 2014, she lost on the election day, and won on the post-election vote by mail count.

Quirky system it is.

Imagine if we had had a AG who actually used these past two years to clean out the fraud, how different the results might have been. Lost last chance. RIP for now, Republic.
