WATCH: Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema Remains "Stubbornly Optimistic" That She Can Help Cure "Disease of Division"

Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema delivered her 19 minute defense of why she is remaining steadfast on opposing changes to the Senate's filibuster rule, stating that she remains "stubbornly optimistic" that the country can come together and cure the "disease of division".

Her hastily-announced speech on the Senate floor came shortly before President Joe Biden was to arrive at the Capitol to meet with Senate Democrats about moving forward on voting rights measures, and throws the plans to pass the bills into more uncertainty.

We were going to post C-Span's transcript of the speech, but their automated transcribing system leaves to much to the imagination. We will post a better transcript once received.
