The Agenda

Kyrsten Sinema opponent spent campaign money on teeth whitening, handgun

David Giles, who is running in the Republican primary to challenge incumbent Democrat Kyrsten Sinema in Arizona’s 9th District, cited a teeth whitening procedure as a campaign expense on an FEC report.
He also spent more than $1,000 on clothing, $500 on t-shirts for a teen abstinence event and nearly $3,000 on “tactical equipment” for his office, including a handgun.
Inexperience is clearly at play. “I’m still learning how to file FEC reports,” Giles told the Arizona Republic, which also reported that he paid $100,000 to Gary Price, a former Arizona Corporation Commission member, as his campaign advisor.
Sinema, the first openly bisexual person in Congress, should have no trouble keeping her seat in a district labeled Safe Democrat by the Rothenberg & Gonzales Political Report/Roll Call.
