Political news is breaking in the Grand Canyon State. The local NBC News affiliate is reporting that Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Phoenix) will soon announce a challenge to Sen. Jeff Flake (R). For her part, the Congresswoman admits to only be “seriously considering” entering the campaign. Ms. Sinema has been raising large amounts of money during all of 2017 and possesses more than $3 million in her campaign account, actions consistent with preparing for a statewide run. Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton (D), who is also publicly considering his own Senate campaign, would instead reportedly run for Sinema’s open House seat if she decides to challenge Flake. The Arizona Senate campaign is becoming one of the nation’s most important 2018 contests.
