7. A similar case in a local election
Our county sheriff in Milwaukee, a self-described Democrat, was appointed by the Republican governor at that time and has been very cozy with the Republican party during his term. He has refused several direct invitations to join the Democratic party. He is being challenged in the primary by a real Democrat, and the Milwaukee Democratic Party has taken the unprecedented step of endorsing a candidate (the challenger) in the primary. Since the Republicans have a hotly contested primary for state attorney general and a few other local seats on their ballot, they may not want to cross over and vote in the Democratic primary to help the sheriff. We hope.
