Democratic Senator Kyrsten Sinema Comes Out Against Ending Filibuster: ‘Not Open to Changing Her Mind’

Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (AZ) has become the second Senate Democrat to come out against efforts to eliminate the chamber’s filibuster. Sinema is “against eliminating the filibuster, and she is not open to changing her mind about eliminating the filibuster,” her office said in a statement obtained by The Washington Post. Eliminating the legislative filibuster, which Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is keen on protecting, would allow legislation to pass by a simple majority vote.
