The Senator appear’s to be digger herself into a deep political hole….
Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) is pouring fuel onto talk of a 2024 Democratic primary challenge by digging into her opposition to changing the filibuster.
Sinema in a Friday speech on the Senate floor roughly an hour before President Biden met with Senate Democrats ruled out a filibuster carveout for voting rights legislation, enraging voices on the left.
Her position wasn’t new, but the timing of the speech angered national progressives, civil rights groups and activists back in her home state.
“I don’t know what she gains from doing what she did. … Either she delivers on the policies that we’re asking for or she’s out,” said Luis Avila, a progressive organizer aligned with the Primary Sinema Project, which is fundraising in support of a 2024 challenge.
Sinema also found herself at odds with Arizona Democratic Party Chair Raquel Terán, who said that, “We are disappointed to say the least that she has chosen to protect an antiquated rule over her constituents.”
Though Sinema isn’t on the ballot again until 2024, frustration with her has already spawned multiple groups fundraising for her ousting.
The Primary Sinema Project said it had its best fundraising day on Thursday since launching on Sept. 30, and its second-best on Friday, the day after her speech. It is focused on helping finance groups in Arizona to lay the groundwork for unseating Sinema in 2024.
The group released a memo in the wake of Sinema’s speech accusing her of “defying the will of the people of Arizona, shifting power to Mitch McConnell, and significantly weakening Democrats’ chances of retaining their majorities in the House and Senate.”
Another group, the Primary Sinema Pledge, is collecting pledges through Crowdpac for donations it plans to give to a 2024 primary challenger if Sinema votes against changing the filibuster….
