9. That's the theory behind our local slating process.

Before the primary our county party decides who our "official" democratic candidates are and anyone else who refuses to drop out or continues to support them becomes persona non grata and is essentially shunned. Unfortunately the chosen candidate is usually the one with the most money and is expected to pay the county party a fee for the privilege.

Oddly enough under our current rules supporting the "wrong" democrat is more risky than supporting a republican.
