More bad news for the Democrat candidate for U.S. Senate in Arizona. Kyrsten Sinema was caught on tape in a 2003 interview agreeing with the host that it’s “a personal decision” for an American to decide to go and fight for the Taliban. Republican Senate candidate and former Air Force combat pilot Martha McSally pressed her on the comment at a debate on Monday, demanding Sinema apologize for saying it’s OK to commit treason. The Democrat tried changing the subject to a critique of the “ridiculous attacks” by McSally.
—QUOTABLE: “Fine…I don’t care if you want to do that, go ahead.” -Sinema in 2003 interview
—QUOTABLE: “I want to ask right now whether you’re going to apologize to the veterans and me for saying it’s okay to commit treason…We need a response because she owes us an apology.” -Martha McSally at debate
The GOP senate candidate in Arizona is experiencing a polling bump. Martha McSally, the Republican running to replace the outgoing Sen. Jeff Flake, is out to a six point lead over Democrat Kyrsten Sinema. The polling bump is an anomaly in a race where the two have been locked in a dead heat for months. But comments Sinema made about Arizona back in 2011 could spell big trouble for the looney liberal—in a video of a speech seven years ago, Sinema called Arizona “the crazy state” and Arizonans “crazy.” She states in the video that Arizona is crazy because of one factor: “they’re called Republicans,” she said. She goes even further in comments at an out of state speech to liberal activists.
—QUOTABLE: ”I want to talk to you about some of the things that I think that you can do to stop your state from becoming Arizona.” -Sinema in 2011 speech to liberal activists
