John Deeth Blog: Harkin page, House caucus favoring incumbents with primary challenges?

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

With relatively few worries about re-election for the first time,
Senator Tom Harkin is turning his efforts to helping state legislative
candidates. A campaign email Monday steered Harkin supporters to a
"Building Blue" page, where readers can enter their email address
(thus building Harkin's list) and vote on which legislative candidates
should receive up to $7,000 from Harkin. But a look in the drop-down
boxes shows that incumbents with primaries are listed, but their
challengers aren't. A Harkin spokesperson said the list was provided
by the House Democratic Caucus and did not constitute endorsement, but
the House Democratic campaign director says otherwise.
