Sen. Kyrsten Sinema

United States Senator, Arizona

Born and raised in Arizona, Kyrsten understands the challenges Arizonans face because she’s faced them too. Growing up, her family struggled to make ends meet, but they got by thanks to family, church, and hard work. Kyrsten’s childhood experience showed her the power of determination, working hard, and helping others. Independent of party politics, Kyrsten works every day to deliver meaningful, measurable results for Arizona families. Kyrsten’s unique ability
to ignore the chaos and create unlikely partnerships in an increasingly partisan Congress allowed her to pass landmark laws helping Arizona veterans get the benefits they’ve earned, creating strong and good paying careers for Arizonans, and keeping Americans safe at home and abroad
– all without raising taxes. That’s why leaders in both parties have called her one of the most effective lawmakers and she consistently ranks as one of the most bipartisan and independent leaders. Kyrsten feels a duty to serve and give back to the communities and country that gave her so much. She’ll keep working to solve problems and help everyday Arizonans build better lives for themselves and their families.
