The Intercept reviews:
“A SPECTER IS haunting the Home of Representatives: the specter of primaries. All of the powers of the established order have entered right into a holy alliance to exorcise this specter. Blacklists have been drawn up; arms have been locked … Democratic Reps. Dan Lipinski, Sick.; Eliot Engel, N.Y.; Henry Cuellar, Texas; Steny Hoyer, Md.; and Jerry Nadler, N.Y., are all going through main challenges, and paranoia is being stoked contained in the Democratic caucus. “The query that comes up on a regular basis is, is there anyone internally helping and abetting, encouraging individuals to run in opposition to incumbents?” Rep.

This presents a golden alternative for NRA and associates to precise revenge on politicians they may not in any other case contact in a normal election, notably Engel and Nadler.

Even when NRA is unsuccessful at eradicating them, they’ll run up the invoice for his or her re-election campaigns. If they’ve to spend so much extra money preserving their seats they might rethink whether or not or not it’s price it to advertise anti- gun/block pro- gun laws.
