Progress Report: A partial list of Benedict Arnold Democrats and their 2008 primary challengers
Advertisements [?]
I posted this list on GD a while back to highlight Democrats who seem to have sold our party out. Let's see how things have progressed since then in terms of Democratic primary challengers.

Moderators, pay careful attention - in no wise am I encouraging independent or third-party candidates to run against these Democratic incumbents. This is strictly Democrat vs. Democrat, and I say let the battle for the party begin!

Disclaimer: This is not a complete list. Updates and additions are welcome.

-----

As you can see from the list presented above, out of 15 turncoat Dems, only two of these turncoats have Democratic primary challengers. Only two. Clearly, our party still has a world of work to do - and not much time left to do it.

So, if your Congressperson is one of the individuals listed above, and there isn't anyone challenging that individual for that seat in Congress, it's a sign that you should find an honest Democrat who is willing to run against them - or possibly run against them yourself.
