Breaking: Sinema (D) wins Arizona senate seat

PHOENIX — Representative Kyrsten Sinema, a Democrat and former social worker, scored a groundbreaking victory in the race for a Senate seat in Arizona, defeating her Republican opponent after waging a campaign in which she embraced solidly centrist positions, according to The Associated Press.

Ms. Sinema’s victory over Martha McSally, a Republican congresswoman and former Air Force pilot, marks the first Democratic triumph since 1976 in a battle for an open Senate seat in Arizona. Ms. Sinema takes the seat being vacated by Jeff Flake, a Republican who has repeatedly been insulted by President Trump.

The win by Ms. Sinema points to a remarkable shift in Arizona’s political landscape. That state has been a Republican bastion for decades, but Democrats are seizing on dissatisfaction with budget cuts and growing unease over the Trump administration’s immigration crackdown to make inroads with moderate voters.

Voter drives to register more Latinos, who generally vote Democratic in Arizona, appear to have paid off for Ms. Sinema. About 2.1 million Latinos live in Arizona, about a third of the state’s population; while Mr. Trump narrowly carried the state in the 2016 election, many Latinos in the state have expressed displeasure with the president.

This is huge! McSally was originally projected to win on Election Day! Trump will be FUMING! I think it’s been about 30 years since a Democrat won in Arizona.

The only Republican running with any damn class, and not screaming about non-existent fraud.

So happy with this result, but I am impressed with McSally’s concession video, did not agree with her stances or tactics at all, but it was nice to see some respect in a world full of hatred and verbal attacks
