When you have lost fellow Democrats in West Virginia, this is a sign that the Democrats are continuing to become the tree in the wood chipper that will be the November midterm elections.
Tonight, West Virginia Democrats ended the career of 28-year House member Alan Mollohan giving an upstart financial planner, state Sen. Mike Oliverio, a chance to keep this seat in Democrat hands.
The Republicans have made this a target seat and even with Mr. Hollohan's loss need to keep it in target range.
Sen. Olivero will face Republican David McKinley in the November election.
Now the anti-incumbent tide has hit the Democrat party. After Republican Sen. Robert Bennett (R-Utah) was defeated in his bid for a fourth term this past weekend, this will give some credence to the Obamawhore media theme that there is an anti-incumbent trend rather than an anti-Democrat trend.
But, if primaries are decided like this, that argument will fall by the wayside. An incumbent does have, well, incumbency, on his or her side. An upstart in such a volatile environment may not have the ability to keep any given seat. And Republicans are very hungry this year.
In November, a lot of Obamacare supporters are sure to feel the wrath of an electorate that wants to put government in its place.
One way is to beat the dead weight in primaries.
Just ask Sen. Bennett and Rep. Mollohan.
