- Independent Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona argued her “path to victory” to reclaim her Senate seat in 2024 would be to garner more support from Republicans than Democrats and win the majority of independent voters, according to a donor memo reported by NBC News on Monday.
- Sinema has yet to launch a reelection bid, but could face Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego and former Republican gubernatorial nominee Kari Lake, who is inching toward a campaign, in a general election next year.
- The senator’s memo argues that if she runs for another term, Sinema could secure the seat with 60 percent to 70 percent support from independents, as well as 25 percent to 35 percent of Republicans and 10 percent to 20 percent of Democrats, according to NBC News.

Sinema’s pitch is that both parties will nominate “extremists” for Senate in Arizona, and that she will win as an independent by attracting 10-20% of Democrats, 60-70% of independents and 25-35% of Republicans.
