Arizona Senate Race: Sinema has a slim lead over McSally in latest poll


Last year, she voted for a Republican bill, the American Health Care Act, which included a provision that weakens protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

During a recent interview with CBS 5 Phoenix, she tried to avoid questions about health care. She suggested that the issue doesn’t matter to Arizona voters. “Can we please talk about the things that matter to most Arizona voters instead of repeating the Arizona Democratic Party press releases? This is ridiculous, honestly. Do you have anything to talk about like the caravan or job opportunities?”

Sinema focuses on health care

On the other hand, Sinema is telling Arizonans that health care is one of her priorities. She believes Arizonans worry about the rising cost of health insurance and the efforts in Washington to repeal protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

Sinema noted that around 2.8 million Arizonans have pre-existing conditions and promised to prevent any attempt to take away their protections. She voted against the American Health Care Act.
