Sinema began her political career in the Arizona House of Representatives. She represented district 15 from 2005 until her election to the Arizona State Senate in 2010. She resigned from the senate on January 3, 2012, in order to run for Congress.
Sinema is a member of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's Frontline Program for the upcoming 2014 election. The program is designed to help protect vulnerable Democratic incumbents heading into the election. The 9th Congressional District is a battleground in 2014. Sinema ran unopposed in the Democratic primary on August 26, 2014. She will face Wendy Rogers (R) in the November general election.
Based on analysis of multiple outside rankings, Sinema is a more moderate left of center Democratic Party vote. As a result, she may break with the Democratic Party line more than her fellow members.
Sinema was raised in Tucson, Arizona. During her childhood, Sinema's family spent two years living in an abandoned gas station. She went on to receive four degrees, including a bachelor’s and master's degree in social work from Brigham Young University and Arizona State University, respectively, and then both a Juris Doctorate and PhD in justice studies from Arizona State University.
When Sinema was 18, she took a job as a school social worker in Phoenix and later became an adjunct professor of social work at Arizona State University. She has also worked as a private practice attorney and policy instructor for the Center for Progressive Leadership, where she is a faculty and board member.

On September 9, 2014, the Republican-run House approved H.R. 644, a resolution condemning President Barack Obama's act of exchanging five Guantanamo Bay prisoners for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. The House voted 249-163 for resolution, with all Republicans and 22 Democrats supporting the bill. Fourteen Democrats and five Republicans did not vote on the resolution, while all other Democrats opposed its passage. Sinema dissented from the majority of the Democratic party and voted in favor of the bill.
Sinema voted for HR 1960 - the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014. The bill passed the House on June 14, 2013, with a vote of 315 - 108. Both parties were somewhat divided on the vote.
Sinema voted for HR 2217 - the DHS Appropriations Act (2014) Act of 2014. The bill passed the House on June 6, 2013, with a vote of 245 - 182 that was largely along party lines.
Sinema voted for HR 624 - the CISPA (2013). The bill passed the House on April 18, 2013, with a vote of 288 - 127. The bill would allow federal intelligence agencies to share cybersecurity intelligence and information with private entities and utilities. The bill was largely supported by Republicans, but divided the Democratic Party.
On January 29, 2014, the U.S. House approved the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2013, H.R. 2642, also known as the Farm Bill. The bill passed by a vote of 251-166. The nearly 1,000-page bill reformed and continued various programs of the Department of Agriculture through 2018. The $1 trillion bill expanded crop insurance for farmers by $7 billion over the next decade and created new subsidies for rice and peanut growers that would kick in when prices drop. However, cuts to the food stamp program cut an average of $90 per month for 1.7 million people in 15 states. Sinema voted with 88 other Democratic representatives in favor of the bill.
On January 15, 2014, the Republican-run House approved H.R. 3547, a $1.1 trillion spending bill to fund the government through September 30, 2014. The House voted 359-67 for the 1,582 page bill, with 64 Republicans and three Democrats voting against the bill. The omnibus package included 12 annual spending bills to fund federal operations. It included a 1 percent increase in the paychecks of federal workers and military personnel, a $1 billion increase in Head Start funding for early childhood education, reduced funding to the Internal Revenue Service and the Environmental Protection Agency and protected the Affordable Care Act from any drastic cuts. Sinema joined with the majority of the Democratic party and voted in favor of the bill.

On September 30, 2013, the House passed a final stopgap spending bill before the shutdown went into effect. The bill included a one-year delay of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate and would have also stripped the bill of federal subsidies for congressional members and staff. It passed through the House with a vote of 228-201. At 1 a.m. on October 1, 2013, one hour after the shutdown officially began, the House voted to move forward with going to a conference. In short order, Sen. Harry Reid rejected the call to conference. Sinema voted to approve the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.
The shutdown ended on October 16, 2013, when the House took a vote on HR 2775 after it was approved by the Senate. The bill to reopen the government lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funded the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by Senate Democrats was to require income verification for Obamacare subsidies. The House passed the legislation shortly after the Senate, by a vote of 285-144, with all 144 votes against the legislation coming from Republican members. Sinema voted for HR 2775.
Federal Pay Adjustment Act
Sinema voted for HR 273 - Eliminates the 2013 Statutory Pay Adjustment for Federal Employees. The bill passed the House on February 15, 2013, with a vote of 261 - 154.

Morton Memos Prohibition

The purpose of the amendment as stated on the official text is to "prohibit the use of funds to finalize, implement, administer, or enforce the Morton Memos." These memos would have granted administrative amnesty to certain illegal aliens residing in the United States. The vote largely followed party lines.
Healthcare Reform Rules
Sinema voted against House Amendment 450 - Requires Congressional Approval for Any Rules Under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The amendment was adopted by the House on August 2, 2013, with a vote of 227-185.

40 under 40
In 2010, Sinema was highlighted by Time Magazine as one of the 40 leaders under 40 who are "rising stars of American politics."
Sinema's campaign website lists the following issues:
—Kyrsten Sinema's campaign website, http://kyrstensinema.com/issues/
Sinema's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Excerpt: "The number one job for Congress is creating a stronger economy, both nationally and here in Arizona. That means helping small businesses start and grow, because 90% of new jobs come from small businesses. And Sinema believes Congress needs to do more for the middle class, like protecting payroll tax cuts for working and middle-class families, such as those in the American Jobs Act, which would give a typical Arizona household an additional $1,430 in take-home pay."
- Excerpt: "Half of the world’s energy will come from renewable resources by 2040. Developing clean energy will boost our economy, reduce the effects of global warming, and make Arizona a better place for all of us. And as the sunniest state in America, Arizona is in the drivers’ seat on job-creating solar energy. "
- Excerpt: "As both the daughter of an educator and a college professor herself, Kyrsten Sinema understands that strong schools are built on smart investments – small class sizes, hiring and keeping the best teachers and safe learning environments for students."
- Immigration and Border Security
- Excerpt: "Arizona shares the second-longest border with Mexico, after Texas. Every day, law enforcement fights a losing battle with criminal drug, weapons and human traffickers as well as workers and families looking for a better life here in Arizona."
- Excerpt: "Health care has been the fastest growing expense for businesses and middle-class families. When President Obama moved in 2009 to improve health care by stopping insurance company practices like dropping coverage when you or a family become sick or refusing to cover pre-existing conditions, and strengthening Medicare to offer free preventive care and wellness exams, Sinema supported these and other important reforms to get health care costs under control for all."
