Kyrsten Sinema's  victory over Martha McSally  in Arizona's closely-contested Senate race led to an outpouring of support for Arizona's first female senator from fellow Democrats and others across the political spectrum, including from the person whose seat she will take in Washington.

Gabby Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, also sent along their congratulations.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, and other senators, were quick to welcome their newest colleague.
