(FWD) – The move was almost immediately condemned by Democrats and left-leaning voices on Twitter.
MSNBC Analyst, Brittany Packnett Cunningham stated that Sinema was switching to become an Independent “because she was never really a Dem and couldn’t survive an Arizona Primary. She also waited until after the GA runoffs so the Dems can’t celebrate 51 anymore.” She added, “None of this is surprising but it is confirmation she is the worst.”

Gen Z Activist Victor Shi promised Sinema that younger voters would answer her party disloyalty, writing “Gen Z will make sure that you never see political office again.”
Hey @SenatorSinema: wanted to remind you that more than 70% of young voters in Arizona voted Democratic in this past midterm election. And don’t worry. Because you’re running for re-election in 2024, Gen Z will make sure that you never see political office again.

The mind behind Bot Sentinel, Christopher Boozy wrote, “Kyrsten Sinema switching to an Independent days after Democrats won the GA runoff is all you need to know about Kyrsten Sinema.”

Finally, CALL TO ACTIVISM offered Democrats an another idea, suggesting Sinema be appointed to a cabinet position so Democratic incoming Governor Katie Hobbs can choose a replacement.
Now that Governor Katie Hobbs will be sworn in, President Biden should appoint Kyrsten Sinema to a cabinet position and a new Senator can be appointed for Arizona. Who is down for this plan?

Popular Democratic influencer Nathalie Jacoby demanded Sinema return campaign money:
BREAKING: Kyrsten Sinema will switch parties from Democrat to Independent.
