WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Thom Tillis issued the following statement on Senator Sinema announcing her retirement from the U.S. Senate:

“The Senate will greatly miss Senator Sinema’s strong bipartisan leadership. It has been an honor to work with her to address some of the most pressing challenges facing our nation over the last several years. I admire the remarkable courage she has demonstrated by standing up to immense political pressure to nuke the filibuster, staying true to her conviction that the Senate must remain the legislative body that forces bipartisan cooperation. Elected officials like Senator Sinema are becoming a dying breed: true leaders who are focused on doing what’s best for our country and getting results for the people they serve instead of feeding the rabid partisans of their base with empty platitudes, false promises, and excuses for getting nothing done.”
