McConnell Statement On Senator Kyrsten Sinema

WASHINGTON, D.C.U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) released the following statement regarding Senator Kyrsten Sinema’s announcement that she will not seek reelection in 2024: 

“The institution of the Senate is only as strong as the people willing to defend it. History will remember that with the Senate’s defining feature under grave threat, Senator Kyrsten Sinema’s wisdom and devotion to this body rivaled that of her most seasoned colleagues.

“In five short years, the senior Senator for Arizona has done the work of a storied Senate career. Her investments in trust and genuine relationships with her colleagues unlocked massive opportunities for the people of her state and the entire nation. And her studious willingness to dive into the details and do the heavy lifting of legislation has turned many such opportunities into historic outcomes.

“Our friend from the Grand Canyon State will leave the Senate after one of the most extraordinarily effective first terms in recent memory. Her colleagues, and the people of Arizona, are fortunate that this term is not yet finished.”
