Arizona’s Green Party Candidate Drops Out Of Senate Race, Endorses Dem Nominee Kyrsten Sinema
Arizona’s Green Party candidate announced she is dropping out of the state’s Senate race and is endorsing the Democratic candidate Rep. Kyrsten Sinema.
The move is a boost for Sinema, who is locked in a tight race with Republican Rep. Martha McSally to replace retiring Sen. Jeff Flake.
Angela Green told her supporters “to vote for a better Arizona, and that would be for Sinema.”
Green said she was endorsing Sinema because her views more closely aligned with the Democratic candidate.
“There is a lot of other reasons that I can’t support the other candidate,” Green said.
McSally has a 7-point lead over Sinema, according to a new poll released Thursday.
A poll from NBC News shows Green receiving 6 percent of the vote and an average of polls from RealClearPolitics has Green getting 3 points.

Green’s endorsement of Sinema could give her a late boost just days before the midterms.
