The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) launched attacks against Sen. Krysten Sinema, I-Ariz., and Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., on Monday in a new ad.
The 30-second ad labeled Gallego as “rotten Ruben Gallego” and said he had “abandoned his wife when she was nearly nine months pregnant, then married a D.C. lobbyist.”
Then, it slammed Sinema – a former Democrat now registered as an Independent – claiming she “voted with President Biden’s agenda 100% of the time,” including the administration’s progressive energy initiatives and the COVID-era American Rescue Plan.
“Deadbeat Dad, or liberal Democrat? Arizonans deserve a better choice,” the ad, titled, “A Choice,” concluded.

In a statement to Fox News Digital, NRSC spokesperson Mike Berg said, “Divorcing your wife when she is nearly nine months pregnant is a low-life move that really speaks to Ruben Gallego’s character.”
Gallego divorced his wife, Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego, in 2016. Politico reported a source close to Gallego said he and his ex currently have joint custody of their 6-year-old son.
