IA Democrat Continues To Inspire Primary Challengers

Bad news for Monica Vernon: 2014 Democratic nominee Pat Murphy is strongly considering another run for Iowa’s 1st district. Vernon, who lost to Murphy in a heated 2014 primary race, thought she could breathe easy after her biggest foe decided to withdraw from the campaign. But now Vernon has to deal with the 2014 Democratic victor stepping back into the ring as well as a progressive crusader on her left.

Vernon may just be having the worst year of any Democratic primary candidate.
