Friday, 09. December 2022 12:13

Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema announced she left the Democratic Party to become independent, confirming that she won't join the Republicans.

In an interview with Politico published on Friday, Sinema asserted that she will continue voting in the Senate the same as during the last four years. "I intend to show up to work, do the same work that I always do. I just intend to show up to work as an independent," the senator told the paper, noting that she made the decision due to not "really fitting into a box of any political party."

The Democrats will still hold a majority in the upper chamber of Congress despite her decision.
