Response to McCamy Taylor (Original post)

7. Are you claiming that any primary challenge to Dem is a right-wing plot?

 

That it's not possible that any Dem incumbent could merit a challenge?

I don't actually think it's a good idea to have challenges this year(though we will have to be ok with them at least in SOME point in te future)but is it necessary to equate the very idea of any primary challenge with disloyalty to the party?

That sets up an internal political culture in this party in which rank-and-file Democrats have no way to hold Democratic officeholders accountable. We can't put the officeholders above the party. Doing that serves no greater progressive good.

I agree with you that no one should have voted for Stein...but nobody within our party could ever be the equivalent of Stein.
