Elected in Arizona’s 9th congressional district, Sinema eked out a victory over her opponent Republican Vernon Parker (who we’ve taken on before) ending the race with 6,000 more votes. Kudos to Sinema! Chuck Wolfe, president and CEO of the Victory Fund, which funds and trains LGBT political candidates, remarked:
We’re thrilled for Kyrsten. She’s a dynamic leader and she’ll be a strong voice for her community and for all LGBT Americans.
