21. And I'm not asking you to SUPPORT anybody's primary challenge.

Nor, at this moment, was I planning to support any primary challenges myself.

My point is simply that it can't be progressive to demand that there be no debate and no accountability within this party until we've retaken Congress.

Free speech and open discussion are not our enemiesm, and it doesn't harm us for their to be some way of holding Dem politicians to at least some standards.

And sorry, but our national strategists don't always know best. We lost the chance to retake the Senate in '16 largely by running the sort of bland, timid "it's enough that we're not THEM" campaign that always leads us to defeat.
