This came in from “William” observing television ads for U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema:
“Her term ends in 2025, but it is like she is in an election in November. Daily TV ads, sometimes back to back. Does she have a whole lot of PAC money that must be spent by the end of this year? Did someone run some poll that returned less than stellar reviews of her? I could see Senator Kelly doing this since he is up for re-election in November 2022, but Sinema? … Certainly is turning off me and my wife in considering voting for her in the future. We thought we would get a respite from political ads after November of 2020, but here she is, blanketing TV stations...”
As William concluded: “Overkill to the extreme.”
I placed a few calls to Washington, D.C. seeking answers. No one I could speak with knew what was going on; I’ll look for Sinema’s return phone call. But William is correct, it is as though she is campaigning anew. Maybe they’re hoping Sinema’s success will help Sen. Mark Kelly.
