AZ Green Party Senate candidate dropping out, endorsing Sinema

It's pretty late, but better late than Republican.

The Arizona Green Party's U.S. Senate candidate told 12 News Thursday she is getting out of the race and throwing her support to Democratic Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema.

The decision, just five days before the election, could remove a potential obstacle for Sinema in her toss-up race against Republican Congresswoman Martha McSally.

The Green Party candidate, political newcomer Angela Green, has garnered up to 6 percent of the vote in recent polls. Polling averages show McSally and Sinema separated by a point or two.

Green's message to her supporters: "I want them to vote for a better Arizona, and that would be for Kyrsten Sinema.... What I'm looking to do to help Arizona become more green again. After watching the debates and seeing everything, Sinema's stance on a lot of things are very close to mine."

An estimated 60 percent of all votes in Arizona's 2018 mid-term election have already been cast via mail-in ballot.

Green's name will remain on the ballot.

5. I hope so. We've had early voting here for 3 weeks already

At least 60% of the electorate have voted. Hopefully it makes a difference in this very close race!

6. I got an anti-Green mailer today... From the Republican party?

Trying to tempt me into not voting for Sinema since there's an even more liberal candidate out there?

8. Have you seen the "Vote Homie for real change" signs?

Apparently some viral campaign for a real estate app, trying to skirt advertising laws.

9. Yes!

Just what we need, more signs cluttering up the intersections.

12. 2 or 3% of 60% could easily decide this election

Agree!!!

11. Shouldn't have waited for the ballots to be printed

Greens should run as Democrats in this state, sorry to say. The more liberal the better to me, but on the ballot there should be one choice. That's why the tea party didn't have their own listed separately from the republicans. Someone bring her into the Democratic party.
