The Justice Democrats are off to a strong start. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
"The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s heavy-handed effort to prevent Laura Moser from getting the Democratic nomination in a House primary in Texas seems to have backfired — giving Moser a jolt of free publicity, earning her an endorsement from Bernie Sanders’s Our Revolution group, and instantly turning a vote for her into a symbolic rejection of the party establishment.
On Tuesday night, Moser performed well enough with voters to advance in the state’s runoff primary system.
Moser will be the underdog, though she certainly might win. And if she does, it’s likely the DCCC will take its toys and go home. As House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters from the Austin American-Statesman in February, “We have to be cold-blooded in what we do. In other words, if the wrong person wins — well, nobody’s wrong — but if the person who can’t win, wins, it’s not a priority race for us anymore, because we’ve got 100 races.””*
