Moderate Democratic Sen. Kyrsten Sinema reiterated in a statement why she opposed the Senate rules change that would eliminate the filibuster.
"I also maintained my longstanding opposition to separate actions that would deepen our divisions and risk repeated radical reversals in federal policy, cementing uncertainty and further eroding confidence in our government," Sinema said in a statement after Senate Democrats failed in their effort to use the “nuclear option” to change filibuster rules.
The Arizona senator along with Sen. Joe Manchin, of West Virginia, were the only Democrats to vote the rules change.
"Tonight's votes must not be the end of our work to protect our democracy. That goal requires all Americans everywhere to unite around sustained strategies in support of free, fair, and open elections in which every vote is fairly counted. These challenges cannot be solved by one party or Washington alone."
