The Arizona Democratic Party has censured Sen. Kyrsten Sinema for refusing to vote to change the filibuster to pass voting rights.
The Arizona Republic reported, “Members of the Arizona Democratic Party executive committee passed Saturday a resolution to censure Sen. Kyrsten Sinema over her vote to keep the filibuster. The closed-door vote Saturday morning came after an avalanche of anger from liberals who characterize Sinema, D-Ariz., as an obstructionist who helped doom Democrats’ chances at passing voting-rights legislation.”
Arizona Democratic Party Chair Raquel Teran released a statement after the vote:

Sinema probably views the censure as a political win because it is her dream to stay in power forever by being the next John McCain, but a more realistic view of the situation is that Sinema is probably on her way out of the Democratic Party.
It has long been suspected that Sinema’s goal is to go Independent, and the censure looks like a signal that a break up between Sinema and Democrats is coming.
