Independent Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona has officially filed paperwork to run in 2024 as an independent. It happened Thursday as she filed a statement of candidacy form. However, even though she filed this, that does not automatically mean she will run. But what it DOES do is let her raise money. And as we all know, money and Sinema go hand in hand.

Sinema will face many obstacles if she does decide to run. For example, as an independent, her place on the ballot will not be assured. She would need to garner a certain amount of signatures to accomplish that. The exact amount she’d need is not yet known, but It is estimated that she’d need around 45,000. So Sinema would need to convince Arizona voters to sign the petition saying she should run.

And given that some signatures on these types of petitions are almost always challenged, she’d have to get more than the exact number it wins up being. But Sinema would also have to develop a core constituency. The question in that regard is — who might they be?


It won’t is republicans. Sinema voted to impeach Trump. Maga Republicans aren’t going to vote for her. It won’t be democrats. Her favorability rating is very low with democrats. But more than that, the absolute FURY directed at her isn’t going away. So I question whether she will run at all. And I think — and this is just opinion – that if Sinema realizes that she’d look foolish, then she will not run.

I say this because image (and money) is everything to her. She likes to be seen as having a bit of mystique. She does NOT seem to enjoy looking like a clown. So we’ll wait to see what Sinema decides to do. Maybe amid all her lousy decision-making, she’ll step up and make one very good one — and not run at all.
