Kyrsten Sinema’s Absolutely Miserable Week
Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) is running to represent Arizona in the U.S. Senate, but her hopes hit a bit of a snag late last week when a series of videos surfaced in which she criticized her home state repeatedly at public events.
The bad news for Sinema began with a poll showing her trailing her Republican opponent, Martha McSally, the first female Air Force pilot to fly in combat. Complicating matters further for Sinema, in addition to videos of her criticizing Arizona, multiple media outlets reported on emails and other written remarks she made in the early 2000s about the Iraq war. Sinema’s time as an anti-war activist likely isn’t sitting well with the more than 550,000 veterans who call Arizona home.

Washington, D.C. is mourning the passing of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) this week. McCain, a husband, father of seven, Vietnam veteran, Republican congressman and senator from Arizona, and a two-time contender for the presidency, passed away on Saturday at the age of 81 after battling a malignant brain tumor since 2017.
Tributes from around the world have poured in for the late senator, hailing McCain as the ultimate American hero, patriot, and statesman. Politicians, both Republicans and Democrats alike, praised the man they knew as the ‘Maverick’ as a faithful servant of democracy, and one who lived his life true to his principles, unafraid to go his own way.

THE AR INTEL WEEK AHEAD: 08-06-18
This week, voters head to the polls in several states across the country to vote in primary elections. We will see primary results in Missouri, Michigan, Washington, and Kansas on Tuesday night. However, the nation will be paying particular attention to a special election in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District.
Stretching from Zanesville to the outskirts of Columbus, the 12th District is a traditionally conservative seat that the GOP has held for the last 35 years. This year, however, Republican Troy Balderson is fighting off a serious challenge from Democrat Danny O’Connor.
Despite outside GOP groups pouring millions into the seat and Balderson benefiting from recent visits from President Trump and Vice President Pence, the race is a toss-up according to a recent Monmouth University poll.
With this being the last special election before the November midterms, Tuesday’s election results could very well set the tone for the remainder of this election cycle.
Stay tuned to AR Intel for all your primary night news.
