6. That's the same situation in Fla.

 

A completely dysfunctional state party, poor candidates, and gerrymandering. Registered Dems outnumber Reps by nearly a million, yet the state party keeps forcing ex-republican candidates on us. They even work harder keeping progressives off the primary ballot than they do defeating republicans. In my District, a progressive US House candidate was forced off the primary ballot to clear the way for the "Party candidate", with several threats to he and his family by state and local party. The "Party candidate" was, naturly, an ex-republican. He then had to withdraw after the filing deadline when it was discovered he lied about his college degree and credentials. As a result, there was no Dem candidate on the GE ballot....in a leaning blue district. We see first hand what the Third Way is all about...making sure the election winner (whether D or R) is going to support corporatism. I'm completely fed up, and will not vote for any candidate promoted by the state party. The "lesser of two evils" is still much too evil for me.
