Democrat Krysten Sinema Closes In On Senate Win

"We've needed a woman in the Senate for a long time to bring common sense and to work for the people of Arizona, and she's gonna do it". Sinema first came to prominence as an openly bisexual Green Party activist in Phoenix.

Supporters are also cheering, upon hearing news of Sinema's victory.

"He taught us to always assume the best in others, to seek compromise instead of sewing division and to always put country ahead of party", she said.

Sinema ran as a nonpartisan centrist. She then became a Democrat and served several terms in the state Legislature.

Republican Rep. Martha McSally is conceding Arizona's Senate race to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema.

By Election Day, it was certain that Arizona was going to have its first female U.S. Senator, as all three candidates in the race - Sinema, McSally, and Green Party candidate Angela Green, who withdrew before Election Day - are female.

Arizona's Senate race isn't over. But Sinema piled up an insurmountable lead over McSally.

McSally lost her first race in Arizona's 2nd congressional district in 2012, when she was narrowly defeated by Democratic Rep. Ron Barber, who replaced Rep.

McSally conceded the hard-fought race on Monday night - six days after the election - as county-by-county tallies of mailed-in ballots continued to increase Sinema's lead. McSally has fallen further behind with each Maricopa County tabulation dump and only picked up 348 votes in Pinal County, which has an estimated 15K ballots left to count. Her win follows years of Democratic shutouts at the statewide level in Arizona and shows that the longtime Republican bastion is becoming a swing state.

McSally backed Trump's tax cut, border security and the repeal of ObamaCare as she survived a three-way GOP primary in August, defeating two conservative challengers who claimed her support for Trump was fake.

Sinema attacked McSally's leadership of last year's failed ObamaCare repeal effort as a sign that she would not protect Arizona residents with pre-existing medical conditions.

Sinema also paid tribute to Arizona native son John McCain, the senator and 2008 Republican presidential nominee who emerged as a key Trump critic and who died of cancer earlier this year. Jeff Flake. Democrats now have 47 Senate seats, while Republicans have 51.
