Arizona Democratic Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema trashed the people of her state in an undercover sting video released on Monday night by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas.
Sinema, who has a history of making highly disparaging remarks about the state of Arizona, said that you can’t talk about gun control in Arizona because Arizonans will “actually shoot you.”
Sinema’s campaign manager, Michelle Davidson, suggested that Sinema supports incremental gun control laws that slowly chip away at the rights of law-abiding Americans, saying that the campaign “can’t be talking about an assault weapons ban.”
“So we can’t talk about that [assault weapon bans] right?” Davidson said. “So what Kyrsten… the conversation that she can lead is how do we get to a place where we can, background checks… We’ve got to fix the gun show loophole, we have to fix the background check system. We’ve got to make it harder for people who have been convicted of domestic violence and other violent crimes to get guns — I mean those are the conversations we can have.”

Sinema’s campaign staff admitted that she is a far-left candidate despite her attempts to portray herself as a moderate.
“There’s a lot of very conservative people in Arizona and so [Sinema] can’t alienate the conservative or moderate conservative voters by being super pro- — she is pro-choice,” field organizer Lauren Fromm said. “She is very liberal, she’s progressive.”
Another person working on Sinema’s campaign, Madison Snarr, mocked Sinema’s attempts to portray herself as a moderate.
“She’s going to vote for the interests of Arizonans,” Snarr said. “She’s going to stand up and protect Arizonan values. Whatever the f**k that means.”
VERITAS: Sinema herself admits she can’t win without moderate voters. That’s okay with her campaign staff because they know in the end what Kyrsten Sinema really believes. (FULL REPORT: https://t.co/KvBAmDOCNO) pic.twitter.com/1zfZ4VQ15l
