(National Sentinel) Lunacy: The race to replace retiring U.S. Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., is considered to be one of the Democrats’ best opportunities to flip a red seat blue next month, but the party’s candidate, far-Left Krysten Sinema, seems to be doing everything she can to lose to GOP challenger Martha McSally.
Both are current U.S. House members so that’s a wash. But McSally is a former fighter pilot and became the highest-ranking woman to serve in the Air Force. Meanwhile, Sinema has said things that not only empower our enemies but would protect criminal sexual behavior against children.
Oddly, polls had Sinema up by some 8 points in recent weeks in a red state where POTUS Trump handily won, but after a series of comments she has made past and present have been publicized, she and McSally are virtually tied
As The Daily Caller reported:
Sinema, a former activist with the left-wing Green Party, is under increasing scrutiny over her history of inflammatory positions.
Flyers that Sinema’s anti-war group distributed ahead of a 2003 protest depicted American soldiers as skeletons and said the U.S. was waging “terror” in the Middle East. A local anarchist group joined forces with Sinema’s group for the protest.

The day before the protest, Sinema said she didn’t care if Americans opposed to the war joined the Taliban.
“I don’t care if you want to do that, go ahead,” she said.
Sinema drew comparisons in 2006 between American soldiers killed abroad and people who died trying to illegally cross the border into the U.S.
While serving the state legislature in 2007, Sinema fought to protect a loophole that allowed men caught with child prostitutes to argue that the child looked older as a defense in court.
Sinema argued that eliminating the loophole was “not fair,” citing her past work with 12- and 13-year-old children who she said “look older than me.”
She’s also disparaged her own state. In 2001, she referred to Arizona as “the meth lab of democracy,” then later said her state produces “crazy.”
“No one is forcing Kyrsten Sinema to run in a state that she thinks is ‘crazy’ and a ‘meth lab of democracy,’” Republican National Committee spokeswoman Renae Eze said in a statement to The Daily Caller.
“Sinema’s perpetual disdain for Arizona proves what little respect she has for the people who live here,” Eze continued. “Kyrsten Sinema is more than welcome to drop out so Arizonans can be represented by a leader who actually cares about this state.”
McSally, meanwhile, has appealed to Republican voters to reject Sinema’s “Kool-aid” and vote for their party.
“We need Republicans to vote Republican. We’ve got some moderate Republicans who have seemed to have drank Kyrsten Sinema’s Kool-Aid in the polling and we need to bring them back home,” McSally said in an interview with The Jeff Oravits Show.
“We need the base and those who voted for President Trump also to be getting out to vote and be energized,” she added.
