The Arizona Republic
Arizona Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema is attending President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration today, saying it signals a commitment as a “model for democracy and peaceful transition of power.”
Sinema endorsed Biden during the election and signaled in a statement issued ahead of his swearing-in that while she supported him over Trump, she disagrees with some of his policy proposals.
“Now is also the time to deliver on the needs of everyday Americans struggling with the health and economic consequences of the pandemic,” Sinema said. “President Biden and I do not agree on every issue, and I will always vote based on what’s right for Arizona. I pledge to continue working across the aisle, seeking compromise instead of sowing division — because we are in this together. Regardless of who each of us voted for, Americans deserve a government that is worthy of us and working for us.”
