The Arizona Democratic Party will reportedly been holding a vote Saturday to determine if they will censure Senator Kyrsten Sinema.
The censure vote was reportedly prompted by progressives in the state Democratic Party see her as too accommodating to President Trump and his policies. Those seeking to censure Sinema say that her vote to confirm David Bernhardt, Trump’s nominee to serve as Secretary of the Interior, as well as her vote to confirm William Barr as Attorney General were both factoring into the decision.
Felecia Rotellini, Arizona Democratic Party chairwoman, said the censure will be heard but is unsure it will pass.
“We are a very diverse group and that means diversity of thought, as well,” Rotellini said. “I don’t think it reflects poorly on the party at all, I don’t think it’s an indication of a fracture. I think it’s an indication of a group of people who think differently and have a different perspective on the same topic.”
