James Carville says Kyrsten Sinema won't win a Democratic primary against Ruben Gallego if she runs [View all]

for reelection in 2024

The longtime Democratic strategist James Carville threw cold water on Sen. Kyrsten Sinema's chances for reelection if Rep. Ruben Gallego challenges her for the party's 2024 Senate nomination in Arizona.

In a recent Vox interview that was published on Thursday, Carville expressed confidence in Gallego's chances if he were to launch a primary run against the freshman senator, who was first elected in a 2018 race against then-Republican Rep. Martha McSally to great fanfare among state Democrats.

Sinema has come under withering criticism by many Democratic voters and activists, with many Arizonans incensed that she declined to back filibuster reform to pass the party's marquee voting-rights bills and was critical of some elements of President Joe Biden's Build Back Better agenda.

"She's not going to win a primary against Rep. Ruben Gallego, I'll tell you that damn much," he told the publication. "And I will personally volunteer to help him fundraise because I think we can keep that seat if he runs."
