Bleeding Heartland: What to do when you don't care for your party's nominee
Excerpted from this post at BLOGNAME
In yesterday's thread on the race between Dave Loebsack and
Mariannette Miller-Meeks, secondtonone referred to the fact that a
right-wing Republican group put Miller-Meeks on their "Wall of Shame."
I assumed that this was related to bad blood from the hard-fought
Republican primary in Iowa's second Congressional district, but a
commenter claiming to be a member of that group posted the following:
"We would have included anyone from that race on the Wall of Shame.
There was no candidate that we could have supported in that race." ...
It's a good question, and not just a theoretical one for many of us
who follow politics closely. On several occasions I have not been
thrilled with any of the candidates in a Democratic primary. Many more
times I have volunteered for a primary campaign, only to have a
different candidate win the nomination.
