On Monday evening, Rep. Martha McSally congratulated Rep. Kyrsten Sinema on her victory in the U.S. Senate race in a tweet. McSally conceded the race after a recent vote tally increased Sinema’s lead by 2 percentage points.

Long-time friend, Sam Stone told listeners of KFYI’s James T. Harris show today that he fears illegal ballot harvesting tipped the scales for Sinema.

Much like one of her mentors, the late Senator John McCain, McSally was not a popular figure due to the fact that she was seen by grassroots Republicans as a “carpetbagger.” The Republican Party establishment fought her Republican Primary challenger, Dr. Kelli Ward, every step of the way, and McSally could not convince the grassroots to rally around her.

Conservatives believed that Sinema, a native Arizonan, was largely protected by the mainstream media, who largely ignored her radically progressive history.

The LGBTQ Victory Fund made Sinema one of its “Game Changer” candidates early on in her campaign. It held fundraisers on her behalf, directly contributed $10,000, and raised more than $97,000. LGBTQ Victory Fund works increase the number of openly LGBTQ elected officials at all levels of government.

“An LGBTQ woman winning a U.S. Senate seat in a state that voted for Trump is a game-changer, both for the LGBTQ community and the Democratic party,” said Annise Parker, President & CEO of LGBTQ Victory Fund. “Kyrsten’s victory makes clear that an LGBTQ candidate who listens to voters and prioritizes their issues can win elected office anywhere – blue state or red state. It also signals to the Democratic party that nominating more LGBTQ candidates for high-level positions should be a strategic priority, because their openness and authenticity resonates with independent voters. Now Kyrsten joins Senator Tammy Baldwin, fresh off a huge reelection victory, in a U.S. Senate that continues to disregard White House attacks on our community and refuses to consider protections that most Americans support. By doubling our influence with two passionate and tough LGBTQ women, however, the U.S. Senate will certainly find our community more difficult to ignore.”

  1. There’s hope for this State yet! Congrats to Sinema!

    It would only make sense that Kyl step down and Ducey appoint McSally. Fact is, neither party is in the majority in Arizona.
    We Independents are the true power brokers. You democruds and republicruds both need to straighten out and fly right.

    That’s an order.

  2. Still trying to struggle to understand How the importance of a Governorship, Gets pushed to the side, By a senate race. So all those sienema voters.. What they just said her and no one else.. forget old Dave over there. We do not want a democratic governor this time around… Weird i am telling you. Hmmmm I wonder if Sinema will have the one flew over the cuckoos nest theme music for all the ones that call in..

  3. We had a saying in my union, “Democracy is gruesome!” It’s what the officers said when we lost a vote by the membership. But then we added, “But it’s still the best system anyone has come up with.”

    Many of the folks I voted for didn’t get elected, but that’s democracy, not cheating — although it was indeed a dirty campaign on all sides.

  4. Well way to Arizona! You think we have problems now, get ready! Sinema is going to make a complete joke of our state now.

  5. She’s probably less liberal than Flake and certainly more reliable than McCain. McSally was an awful candidate – should never have won the primary for the House seat.

    McCain is smiling in his grave, proud as a new papa that he personally destroyed the Arizona Republican party.

    • What, your last sentence says it all. Thanks to little Johnnie and his minions for 6 years of Jeff Flake and now we got 6 years of the Crazy one that thinks all of the state is nuts. Just wait. Gun control, open borders, no ICE and the rest of the liberal BS that goes with her.

  6. Read the book “Fraud: How the Left Plans to Steal the Next Election,” by Eric Eggers and for history “At Any Cost: How Al Gore Tried to Steal the Election,” by Bill Sammon.

    Democrats cheat and it’s pretty obvious they cheated big time here. Illegal ballot harvesting, “Emergency Voting Centers,” rejected ballots mixed in with regular ballots, double voting students and snowbirds, illegal alien voting, there’s little doubt all this went on.

    So disappointed in the RINOs that won’t step up to eliminate election fraud. I can only guess they are being paid off or blackmailed in some way.

  7. We are soon going to wish we had Kelli Ward, mark these words. I have to think some of our conservative voters sat it out, because they don’t like McSally. Well, you folks just handed it to the worst, absolute worst. Sometimes the choice can be between two candidates you don’t want. But you have to hold your nose, so to speak, and vote. Otherwise you just hand it to the worst choice, Arizona. DUH !!!!

  8. I do not understand how Sinema could have ever said “Stay at home moms are B.S. and leeches on their husband”. Please help me understand how any self respecting woman could vote for her.

    The Daily Caller reported at the time:
    “These women who act like staying at home, leeching off their husbands or boyfriends, and just cashing the checks is some sort of feminism because they’re choosing to live that life,” Sinema told Scottsdale nightlife magazine 944 in 2006. “That’s bullshit. I mean, what the f*** are we really talking about here?” (https://dailycaller.com/2018/10/20/kyrsten-sinema-stay-at-home-moms-leeches/)

    Yes, she did try to explain away this comment by claiming to be doing a late night show type of spoof. Really??? Quite a recommendation for someone who will be representing our Great State.
