Kyrsten Sinema announced on Tuesday that she will not seek reelection to the United States Senate in 2024 and will “leave the Senate at the end of this year.”

Despite leaving the Democratic Party in 2022 and switching to Independent, Kyrsten Sinema has voted with Democrats on just about everything.

This leaves a head-to-head matchup between the Trump-Endorsed GOP Senate Primary frontrunner Kari Lake and Democratic frontrunner Ruben Gallego.

The survey of 1,001 Arizona Likely Voters was conducted on February 21-26, 2023 by Rasmussen Reports and The Bull Moose Project.

The latest poll from @Rasmussen_Poll shows that any way you slice it, with Sinema or without, I am beating @RubenGallego.

The people of Arizona despise @JoeBiden‘s agenda, & they’re not going to send the radical (Ruben) who enabled it to the United States Senate.
