Nothing short of a political lovefest took place at the annual East Valley Partnership luncheon today. Held at EVIT and sponsored by APS, the event features an annual discussion by congressional leaders who represent the east valley.
Both retiring Republican Congressman Matt Salmon and Democrat Kyrsten Sinema delivered their reports with each praising the other during the conversation. At one moment, Sinema became teary over Salmon’s retirement from the House.
But what was most revealing was Sinema’s announcement that she was looking forward to sitting in the same seat next year alongside Andy Biggs.
Perhaps a little presumptuous a statement by someone like Kyrsten Sinema who sees herself as someone who moves gracefully among the political elite?
Without actually saying the word, it was essentially an endorsement of the east valley politician who is running to succeed Matt Salmon.
One thing is clear, it takes career politicians like Kyrsten Sinema to know other career politicians like Andy Biggs. After all, they’ve been both working the system for years.
