CNN labels Kyrsten Sinema a Republican in on-air graphic

The Arizona Democrat faced backlash for reaffirming her support for the filibuster

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., unknowingly switched parties on Wednesday, at least briefly on CNN

Sinema made headlines for her speech on the Senate floor reaffirming her support of the filibuster, striking a fatal blow to the Democrat-backed voting bills she herself also supports but bucked her party’s demands to carve an exception to the 60-vote threshold so the liberal overhaul of elections can be passed by a simple majority. 

During Wednesday night’s installment of “Anderson Cooper: 360,” an on-air graphic showed an “R” next to her name instead of a “D.”
