No worries. She has plenty more corporations to call on to keep the money flowing.

Sinema read the tea leaves and knew that she probably couldn't get through a democratic primary. She'll likely run as an independent in 2024 and will still lose. Her independent streak is a loser in AZ general elections. AZ appears to be turning blue. A Sinema candidacy in the general will likely hurt the republican candidate more than it will the democratic candidate.

I think the general electorate is growing weary of republican obstructionism and focus on helping the wealthy.

Authentic has represented Sinema for years. But the firm saw an internal revolt over its work for the senator earlier this year as she voted against several of the Biden administration's initiatives and refused to support revamping filibuster rules to move legislation on voting rights.

One employee wrote in a union message that the person felt that they were "doing the devil's work." Employees were told they could be removed from the account if they did not feel comfortable.

Authentic declined to comment. Sinema's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Sinema campaign has paid more than $700,000 to Authentic since the start of 2020, according to Federal Election Commission records. According to the filings, expenses included digital consulting and list acquisition.

"Progressive", my ass. Corporate bought scum.
