11. This is obvious. It's amazing that some still don't get this.

Even if she did not face a primary challenge, she would not beat a Republican in the general election. AZ is a purple state where you need strong base support as well as independents to win. Sinema lacks appeal to both groups.

She's not John McCain, who was mavericky on some issues but still voted with GOP on their core issues. The AZ GOP always strongly supported him, as well as independents.

Sinema's votes against the minimum wage increase and against the carve out for voting rights - were fatal moves as they went against core Dem principles. 48 other Dems, including Mark Kelly from her own state, voted for the carve out. She has no excuses.
