Senator Kyrsten Sinema is behind schedule in making a decision about whether to seek re-election in Arizona. She’s also running out of time.

Ms. Sinema, who left the Democratic Party just over a year ago to become an independent, is still considering running for a second term, aides said. But new campaign finance reports show that she is lagging well behind the plan she and her team discussed last spring.

In April, Ms. Sinema and her advisers laid out a schedule for her decision that set a deadline of Sept. 30 for an initial round of public opinion polling and research into challengers, who include Representative Ruben Gallego, a Democrat, and Kari Lake, a Republican television-anchor-turned-politician who narrowly lost the governor’s race in 2022. By the end of December, Ms. Sinema would have a campaign staff in place.

But there is no sign that she carried out any significant polling, research or staff hires in the final six months of last year. She spent $6.9 million during the past year, new filings with the Federal Election Commission show, much of which went toward digital advertising, security and consulting.

New concerns also emerged on the other side of her campaign’s ledger. Ms. Sinema collected just under $600,000 during the final three months of last year — the fourth quarter in a row in which she had raised less than in the previous three-month period.

“There are no signs — literally or figuratively — that Kyrsten is going to run,” said Barrett Marson, a Republican strategist in Arizona.
