Thank you Ponderer and Greger, it doesn't bother me one bit if the Democrats, progressive primary out more moderate candidates in several districts where the progressive isn't suited to win or the district just isn't that far left. I'll never understand how or why parties nominate candidates that can't win in the districts or states not suited for that district or state. .

But that's me, not you. I always thought elections were all about winning. I suppose I'm wrong on that. Ideology tops winning. It used to be the Republicans were the only party dumb enough to nominate candidates like Moore, Mourdock, Aiken, right wing wacko's in sure win Red states, Alabama, Indiana, Missouri that ended up losing in the general election.

In 2020 the Democrats primaried out two pro life incumbent democrats only to lose those districts. Maybe come 2022 they'll wish they hadn't done that and let the incumbent who seem sure to win be their nominee instead of a pro choice Democrat who lost.

But all in all, it's the Democrats choice, not mine. It'll be interesting to see what happens if the progressives are successful in primaring those incumbents out, how they'll do in the General Election. Mighty interesting, indeed. You may be right, they may win or they may not. Stay tuned.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
