After a week of allowing voters in Congressional District 9 believe that she didn't want to serve them any more, Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema has finally made a Sherman-esque statement about the prospect of running in CD 7, where Congressman Ed Pastor recently announced he would not seek re-election.
The following was posted to Sinema's Facebook page about an hour ago:
I am flattered that some of my old neighbors and friends asked me to consider running for Congress in District 7. But I love my job representing the people of the 9th district and there is so much more to be done on behalf of the middle class. I am proud of the work I have accomplished but I have only just begun to change the way Congress does business.More »
I am deeply grateful for the support I've received from across Tempe, Chandler, Mesa, Ahwatukee, Scottsdale, and Phoenix. My re-election campaign has already started and we look forward to talking about the work we have done and the work we still have to do to ensure that every Arizonan has a shot at the American Dream.
