WATCH: Progressive Group Launches Mega Ad Campaign Against Sen. Kyrsten Sinema

In a mega, seven-figure ad campaign against Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), a progressive group is putting pressure on the moderate Democrat to use her role in the Senate to ram through a partisan election bill. 

As reported by NBC News, the “group, Just Democracy, is spending $1.2 million for TV ads and another $200,000 on digital ads in Arizona from June 21 to June 30, said a spokesman for the group, adding the effort will feature two ads on cable news programs, local news and local sports in the state.” 

Sinema is a co-sponsor of the “For the People Act,” an election overhaul bill that has little to no Republican support in the Senate. Her actions don’t seem to be enough for progressives, however, who have once against come out in full force to decry the actions of the Arizona senator, pressuring her to take action to push through the legislation. 

In one of the ads put out by the progressive group, it portrayed images of Sinema voting against raising the minimum wage and said that she “didn’t even show up” to vote on a January 6 commission. Sinema has said that she had a “personal family matter” during the commission vote, and her office said “she would’ve voted yes.”
