Wonderful. Darcy Burner narrowly lost to Dave Reichert (R-WA-08) in the 2006 election. She’s running again and she’s raised a lot of money. So, in steps Rodney Tom to challenge her in the primary. Tom converted to the Democrats in 2006. And Congressional Quarterly has the gall to say this:
Burner received significant assistance from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee throughout the campaign year in 2006, but Tom’s entry puts any early national party support for Burner in jeopardy.
Here’s a message to Chris Van Hollen: you best stick with the Democrat in this race or back off entirely and stay neutral.
