Respect to Ann Kirkpatrick for trying. Dems couldn't have found a better candidate. Certainly deserves more credit than Strickland or Murphy.

Sinema? Giffords? Carmona?

Kirkpatrick was never going to beat McCain. She's about as overrated as Murphy and Strickland.
Who ever rated Murphy high enough to be considered overrated?
Ironically, TNVol, who repeatedly rated Murphy vs. CLC, Murphy vs. DeSantis, and Murphy vs. Jolly Safe D.

CLC, DeSantis, and Jolly would have been fighting a bitter three-way primary, and the winner would come out damaged and short on cash, giving Murphy the advantage (by mid-June, it became clear Murphy would win his primary).

Yeah, but to pretend that Murphy could literally refrain from campaigning and still win (Which is what Safe D is supposed to mean) is just stupid.

So if Rob Portman stops campaigning, he'll lose?

No, he'll win. I have that at Safe R now.

And on representatives who don't campaign, let me know when all of those super safe democrats in NYC, or all of those super safe republicans in much of Texas, ever get around to campaigning in the general election. Yeah, they'll do something in the primary if someone runs against them. But in the general, maybe a town hall or two in the August Recess because "everyone does it", but beyond that they probably just sit back in one of their residences and relax while whatever donations they get collect dust in some bank account or random desk drawer, never to be spent until their next primary.

Sinema is an openly bisexual atheist. I'm not sure Arizona would like her(Though she would still probably be a good recruit). Giffords has recovered from the shooting in 2011, but she still has a strongly inhibited ability to speak(i.e. she can think fine, but has serious trouble communicating those thoughts), which would make voters unfairly question her mental ability. Carmona doesn't want to run anymore, so...

Did Sinema ever actually classify herself as athiest? I know she dodged the question at least once in 2012.
