Outgoing Sen. Jeff Flake congratulated Kyrsten Sinema Monday night, after she edged out Republican rival Martha McSally to win his vacant Arizona Senate seat.
Congratulations to @kyrstensinema on a race well run, and won. It’s been a wonderful honor representing Arizona in the Senate. You’ll be great.— Jeff Flake (@JeffFlake) November 13, 2018
Ms. McSally conceded to Ms. Sinema after a hard-fought and drawn-out election process. The Democrat is the first woman and openly bisexual person to be elected as a senator.
Mr. Flake decided to retire in October 2017 and spent much of the time since combatting President Trump on a variety of issues. The president said at a recent press conference that he “retired” Mr. Flake from politics.
