Kyrsten Sinema faces Arizona blowback over becoming the Senate's new unmovable roadblock

Alejandra Gomez worked tirelessly to get Democrats, including Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, elected in 2018. But now she feels betrayed.

The 39-year-old co-executive director of the community organizing group LUCHA went door to door in the sweltering Arizona heat in 2018, turning out the Democratic voters that helped get Sinema elected to the Senate. The work was arduous and the hours long, but Gomez and others believed deeply in the need to defeat Republican Martha McSally, who had aligned herself with then-President Donald Trump.

Her work paid off -- Sinema won by nearly 3 percentage points. But it is what happened next -- the Arizona Democrat has become one of the most unmovable roadblocks on Democratic priorities in Washington -- that has shocked people who considered themselves ardent Sinema supporters a few short years ago.

Gomez now has another label for the woman she helped elect: A wolf in sheep's clothing.

1. Good. How long will it take, to install a replacement?

2. It begs the questions:

1. Is Arizona’s Democratic base strong enough to primary and defeat her and if yes, 2. Is Arizona moving left enough that someone to Sinema’s left can successfully win a statewide general election?

I think the answer to number 1 is yes, but number two…I don’t know yet.
