Kyrsten Sinema Ignores 2020 Democratic Presidential Debates, Shed Rather Stay Happy

Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) described her attitude toward watching Democratic presidential primary debates in her own words, in an interview with Politico, “Im not missing anything. I prefer happiness.”

“Look how happy I am,” Sinema added.

Sinema won the Senate seat vacated by retiring Republican Senator Jeff Flake defeating Republican candidate Martha McSally by 2.4 percentage points in the 2018 election.

Her political stance differs on some issues from the official positions of the Democratic Party. She voted for the confirmation of President Trump nominees like Attorney General William Barr and Interior Secretary David Bernhardt.

She met with Bernhardt before voting and “carefully considered his nomination,” to make sure that” he is professionally qualified, believes in the mission of the Interior Department, and will faithfully uphold the law,” Sinema said, according to Arizona Mirror.

Sinema is considered a centrist or a moderate Democrat based on her political views and voting record, according to Arizona Central.
