The chair of the state party said in a statement that they take no pleasure in announcing the decision to formally censure Sinema, but that they voted to do so as a result of her failure to do whatever it takes to ensure.

The Democratic senator was censured by the state party's executive board.

Three days after Sinema and Manchin voted to uphold the Senate's filibuster rules, the state party met. Democrats wanted to close the debate on the voting rights bill with a simple majority instead of the normal 60 votes, but Sinema rejected the rules change. Sinema said last week on the Senate floor that changing the filibuster would cause further division in the country. Minimum standards for early and mail-in voting would be created under the Freedom to Vote Act, which was designed to counter a Republican drive to restrict ballot access at the state level in the wake of the 2020 election.

It's called Tangent.

Emily's List and NARAL Pro-Choice America withdrew their endorsements of Sinema after Wednesday's vote.
