Arizona State Troopers Association leaders endorsed Dem candidate Kyrsten Sinema in Senate race. But didn't consult members. Now, endorsement withdrawn. 'Membership has indicated a preference to stay neutral.' From @azcentral https://t.co/qFUOtMY7zb

The union had endorsed Sinema before in her House elections, so this really is HUGE. From Arizona Central:
The Arizona State Troopers Association this week withdrew its endorsement of U.S. Rep. Kyrsten Sinema in the heated U.S. Senate race after members said they weren’t properly consulted on the matter.
The association, which represents Arizona Department of Public Safety employees and retirees, had endorsed Sinema in the past three federal elections.
The union has decided to stay neutral this year:
MIXED SIGNALS? The Arizona State Troopers Association first endorsed U.S. Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema. This week, they changed their minds.

Too late! The damage is done:
Name a candidate who has had a worse October than Kyrsten Sinema.https://t.co/QuuK1bWmtI
