Kyrsten Sinema, the Arizona senator who quit the Democratic Party in December, is up for reelection next year, and will be challenged by progressive Democrat Ruben Gallego. Steve Phillips joins the show and points to evidence that her chances of reelection are poor. His new book, How We Win the Civil War, has a chapter on Arizona politics.

Also: What if government provided a basic income to all residents? Something like $1,000 a month? How much could that change inequality and poverty? Sasha Abramsky reports on the experiment in Los Angeles with Universal Basic Income.
