Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly has spoken out in defense of his fellow Democratic congressional colleague Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, who, following her opposition to filibuster reform, was censured at the hands of the Arizona Democratic Party (ADP), the Arizona Republic reports.

"Sen. Kelly does not support the censure," a Kelly campaign spokesperson told the Republic on Tuesday. "While they came to different decisions on this vote, he looks forward to continuing to work with Sen. Sinema on Arizona priorities, as they have done during his first year in the Senate to pass critical infrastructure investments that will create good-paying jobs."
