Reps. Kyrsten Sinema, Tulsi Gabbard Hold Joint Fundraiser In Phoenix

(UPDATE, 11:30am: Updated to reflect date of joint fundraiser as Friday night, per Sinema campaign spokesperson.)

Two of the youngest members of the U.S. House of Representatives will hold a joint campaign fundraiser in Phoenix on Friday night.  Arizona Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-CD9) hosted Hawaii's Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI).

inspiring ladies!!"
The two did not publicize the fundraiser, but Arizona's Politics became aware of it after the "Gabbard Sinema Joint Victory Fund" filed its Statement of Organization with the Federal Election Commission ("FEC") last week.  The Democratic National Committee is holding its summer meeting in Phoenix this week, and Sinema welcomed her counterpart via Twitter.

Gabbard (32) and Sinema (37) are two of the youngest members of Congress - their combined ages are still several years less than the dean of Arizona's Congressional delegation, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ, 76).  (They also represent two of the youngest states, so you could even call them the youngest pair.)
