Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Friday celebrated the departure of Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema from the party, asserting it had presented the opportunity for another Democrat to seek her seat.
Sinema announced Friday morning that she would change her party affiliation to Independent amid longstanding tensions with the Democrats over major issues.
“I have joined the growing numbers of Arizonans who reject party politics by declaring my independence from the broken partisan system in Washington and formally registering as an Arizona Independent,” Sinema posted.
In a quote-tweet resharing Sinema’s original announcement, the New York Democrat critiqued her former colleague’s statement as lacking in firm principles, saying “[n]ot once in this long soliloquy does Sinema offer a single concrete value or policy she believes in.”
