Senator Mark Kelly Does Not Get Behind Senator Kyrsten Sinema When Asked About Re-Election

Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) refused to back Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ) over the weekend when asked about her leaving the Democratic Party late last year.

Kelly was asked about Sinema during a Sunday interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” with Jake Tapper.

Tapper mentioned how Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) indicated that he believes Sinema needed to be supported because of her “independent spirit.”

“Do you agree with him?” Tapper asked. “Or do you anticipate supporting whoever the Democratic nominee for that Senate seat would be?”

“Well, I’m not going to get ahead of Senator Sinema. She hasn’t made an announcement,” Kelly responded. “What she has said is, she doesn’t want to be focused on politics right now. I have worked with her very closely over the last two years, I mean, really in a very positive way. She’s very effective in the United States Senate. We have got a lot done. And I look forward to doing that over the next months and the rest of this year.”
