Dem. Senate Candidate Wins Police Union Endorsement, Then Cops Take it Back
After far-left Rep. Kyrsten Sinema had already gained the endorsement of the Arizona State Troopers Association for her Senate campaign, the organization decided to rescind the endorsement after members were outraged.
The association represents Arizona Department of Public Safety employees and retirees, which includes state police.
Members were unhappy with the endorsement in part because it was a decision made by the association’s executive board without the consent of its members, according to a report by the Arizona Republic.
Of course, other members were unhappy simply because of Sinema’s crazy left-wing beliefs.
Dave McDowell, a supporter of Sinema’s opponent, U.S. Rep. Martha McSally, expressed his displeasure with the endorsement.
“That displeased a number of members, including myself,” McDowell said.
It makes sense why members of the association would support McSally in light of some of the comments Sinema made in the past.
In 2006, Sinema compared the deaths of illegal immigrants crossing the border to the deaths of soldiers in war.
“To state that immigration is not a war or is not equal in magnitude to war, I believe, dishonors those who have died in this country and others as migrants,” Sinema wrote.
Sinema also once expressed indifference toward Americans who decide to join the Taliban.
The far-left Democratic candidate also once called her own home state “crazy” and claimed Arizona was the “meth lab” of Democracy.

Members of the Arizona State Troopers Association who oppose this far-left radical were given a chance to voice their opposition in a vote.
Members could vote between keeping the endorsement of Sinema or rescinding the endorsement and become neutral.
Unsurprisingly, members of the association voted to become neutral.
“All members are encouraged to vote for the candidate they personally support,” according to an email sent to association members after the vote. “AZTroopers will refrain from any political statements concerning the race until the conclusion of the election.”
Voting against the endorsement was an act of good judgement from the association members. Everybody should see Sinema’s past comments as completely outrageous.
Somehow, there are still Democrats who want this far-left radical representing them.
Everybody in Arizona should do what the Arizona State Troopers Association did and distance themselves from Sinema.
