The Arizona State Troopers Association on Thursday withdrew its endorsement of Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, the Democratic candidate for Senate, The Washington Free Beacon reports.

“The membership has indicated a preference to stay neutral,” the association said in an announcement on October 22.

“All members are encouraged to vote for the candidate they personally support. AZTroopers will refrain from any political statements concerning the race until the conclusion of the election.”

Although the association endorsed Sinema in the last three congressional elections, she lost its support after her opponent, Rep. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., posted a video of Sinema calling Arizona the “meth lab of democracy” in 2011. 

McSally also accused Sinema of saying it’s “OK to commit treason,” after CNN unearthed an interview that took place following 9/11 in which Sinema dismissed a hypothetical question about an American fighting for the Taliban by saying “I don’t care if you want to do that, go ahead.”

"You said it was okay for Americans to join the Taliban to fight against us," McSally said in a debate earlier this month, according to The Washington Post. "You said you had no problem with that. Kyrsten, I want to ask you right now whether you are going to apologize to the veterans and me for saying it's okay to commit treason."

Sinema refused to answer the question, saying that McSally was “engaging in ridiculous attacks.”
