Many thought that Republican Martha McSally defeated radical socialist Kyrsten Sinema in Arizona, but we were hit by a major surprise. The good news is that fate has its own way of arranging things, and we do love last minute miracles. It turns out that Democrats did not quite defeat McSally.
Thousands of ballots were left uncounted after election day in Arizona. McSally’s win was affected by those ballots, and Sinema was the first Democrat to win a US Senate seat in Arizona since 1988.
Senator Kyl made an announcement that turned things upside down. McSally is the best choice for that position, and she sure deserves to be the next Senator.
“The Arizona Republic has confirmed that Republican Senator Jon Kyl who was hand-selected by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey to replace the deceased Senator John McCain, will resign from his seat at the end of this month.
Ducey is required under law to name another Republican to the seat. A replacement to the Senate seat’ will be announced in the near future,’ according to the Governor’s Office.
Kyl told the Arizona Republic that while he didn’t always agree with President Trump’s style, he supported him and his agenda.
Kyl agreed to finish working until the conclusion of the 115th Congress. Senator Kyl thanked Governor Ducey for the opportunity to serve.
In his letter of resignation, Kyl told Governor Ducey: ‘When I accepted your appointment, I agreed to complete the work of the 115th Congress and then reevaluate continuing to serve. I have concluded that it would be best if I resign so that your new appointee can begin the new term with all other Senators in January 2019 and can serve a full two (potentially four) years. Therefore, I will resign from the U.S. Senate effective 11:59 p.m. EST December 31, 2018.’
‘Senator Kyl didn’t need to return to the Senate,’ Ducey said in a statement. ‘His legacy as one of Arizona’s most influential and important political figures was already without question. But he did return, and I remain deeply grateful for his willingness to step up and serve again when Arizona needed him. I wish him and his family all the best.’”
