Kyrsten Sinema joined her colleagues today in unanimously re-electing Chuck Schumer as Senate Minority Leader despite definitively stating on the campaign trail that she would not vote for him. Here is a portion from a report from Politico.
Kyrsten Sinema, one of the party’s most-prized recruits and a keystone of Democrats’ long-shot hopes of capturing the Senate this fall, has a ready rejoinder.
“I am not going to vote for him,” she said matter of factly when pressed on her view of the Democratic leader.
When called out by the press, Sinema gave the lame excuse that she had to break her promise because Schumer ran unopposed. Here is that announcement on Twitter.
So how long until Sinema says the only reason she sat down for a photo op with Schumer on the day before the vote was because there were no other chairs for her to sit in?
