Leftists Lose It After Sinema Abandons Democratic Party

(UnitedVoice.com) – Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema (I) announced on Friday, December 9, that she was leaving the Democratic Party. The junior senator registered as an Independent. Liberals responded to her announcement, and they weren’t very kind.

Leftist commentator Keith Olbermann responded to Sinema’s announcement, saying she was “ethically unfit” to serve as a senator. He called on her to resign from office.

Pundits expect Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) to challenge Sinema in 2024. He released a statement criticizing the senator for her decision. Gallego pointed to the midterm elections and the Democratic wins, saying the newly-minted Independent was “putting her own interests ahead” of the voters.

MSNBC’s Mehdi Hasan claimed the decision made by Sinema wasn’t at all shocking because “she was never really a Democrat, and […] she can’t win a Dem primary in 2024.”

Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), a fellow Independent, also jumped on the bandwagon. The senator discussed his colleague’s decision on CNN’s December 11 episode of “State of the Union,” and claimed she was party switching because of “her political aspirations for the future.” He went on to say it won’t change the way the Senate operates.

What do you think about Sinema’s decision to switch parties?
