Arizona Rep. Kyrsten Sinema Getting Lots Of National Attention

The new/old Arizona members of the House of Representatives are about to get sworn in.  And, though returning Reps. Matt Salmon (R-CD5) and Ann Kirkpatrick (D-CD1) - two of only eight people to be making a return to the House this year - are getting their share of attention from the media, so is freshman Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-CD9).

I heard Sinema on NPR's Talk of the Nation program yesterday, along with another incoming Democrat and Republican.  She often stood out during that 17-minute panel discussion, with direct and humorous answers.  (Audio below, interview begins at approximately the 13-minute mark.)

Yesterday, she also received the full-length profile treatment from the Washington Post.

It could be an interesting session for Arizona politics watchers.
