Bruising NV Democratic House Primary Could Hurt In General Election

Yesterday, the TV program Nevada Newsmakers discussed the potentially bruising Democratic House primary in Nevada’s 4th Congressional district.

Highlights from the conversation include one panelist noting, “That’s going to be a very crazy race. … A bruising four-way primary could certainly help the incumbent anyway.” Later, the moderator adds, “You have a situation where a lot of money’s going to be spent and by the end of the primary, everybody’s going to be broke and Crescent Hardy will be sitting there with all the cash.”

This broadcast was followed by a Roll Call article that chronicles the myriad Democratic House primaries shaping up across the country that could threaten Democrats’ opportunities and the DCCC’s reaction to them – or lack thereof.
