The Arizona Republic news publication received backlash on social media for depicting Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D., Ariz.) using a rocket launcher to shoot her Senate opponent, Republican Rep. Martha McSally (Ariz.), down in a plane.
Sinema, who is a former anti-war activist, is shown holding a rocket launcher with the word "substance"on it and giving a thumbs up. On the right side of the cartoon, there is a plane going down with the words "shallow attacks" written in the black smoke. The plane has "McSally" written on it, referring to Sinema's opponent, who was the first woman in U.S. history to fly a fighter jet in combat and the first to command a fighter squadron. The words "reason not treason" are at the bottom of the cartoon.
"Arizona Republic editorial cartoonist Steve Benson on the McSally vs. Sinema #AZSEN race," tweeted Arizona Republic's national politics editor Dan Nowicki along with an image of the cartoon.
