Context explains why 2 Arizona Democrats took Trump’s side

By Ronald J. Hanson | The Republic

Two Arizona Democrats facing competitive elections this year sided with President Donald Trump’s agenda more in the past three months than most Republicans in the state’s House delegation.

U.S. Reps. Kyrsten Sinema and Tom O’Halleran each voted with the Trump administration’s preferred position on 10 of 11 key votes, as tracked by the website FiveThirtyEight.
