Washington Democrats’ Primary Meddling Backfires Disastrously
Yesterday, Andrew Korge decided to run for Congress against Annette Taddeo in Florida’s 26th Congressional District, setting up what looks to be a costly, protracted battle for the Democratic nomination. Korge said his reason for running against Taddeo is because she is not running a good enough campaign to unseat the Republican incumbent, adding “Annette’s not really inspirational.”
What’s more, scandal-plagued former 26th District Congressman Joe Garcia is also mulling another run and was recently in Washington, DC, fueling further speculation of a comeback bid.
This newest primary comes on the heels of the second most powerful House Democrat attempting to clear the field for the Washington-backed Taddeo, which has disastrously backfired. As Democrats continue their nearly impossible task of retaking the House majority, they are certainly not helping their chances.
