Arizona Troopers’ Union Revokes Endorsement of Sinema Following Outcry

The Arizona State Troopers Association withdrew its endorsement of Democrat Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema, after members of the union protested the manner in which the endorsement was given.

Following a vote by the group’s executive board to endorse Sinema, the association’s leadership heard from members who were upset with the group’s decision to endorse without input from its membership.

That prompted an email asking members whether they wanted to endorse Sinema or stay neutral. The poll of troopers indicated membership preferred to stay neutral, and the group revoked its endorsement.

This development is just the latest in a lengthy stretch of bad news for Sinema’s campaign. A series of videos showing Sinema criticizing Arizona and the United States have leaked out in the past few weeks.

At least one of the stories from Sinema’s past, a 2002 email published by the Washington Examiner, featured Sinema stating that it would be “inappropriate to ask someone to not destroy property or to carry a weapon,” if they are an anarchist who chooses to express themselves in that way.

It’s difficult to say definitively, but comments like that may not sit well with the men and women commissioned to serve and protect the citizens of Arizona.

Sinema’s campaign said it respected the association’s decision, and a spokesperson for Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ), Sinema’s Senate opponent, simply said, “The Troopers have spoken.”
