If you didn’t already think DC establishment Democrats are in the tank for Ann Kirkpatrick, just take a look at the DCCC’s statement name-dropping her after Martha McSally’s Senate announcement today.
Wonder how Matt Heinz, Mary Matiella, Bruce Wheeler, and Billy Kovacs feel about that?
The reality is Democrats are staring down a daunting five-way barnburner of a primary that’s about to get very nasty. Ann has many serious liabilities Democrats will certainly seize on – not least that she is a carpetbagger, tied closely to Nancy Pelosi and the Washington establishment, and a proven loser who lost the Second District by over 3 points in her failed Senate run last year.
Get ready – this Democratic primary is a ticking time bomb ready to blow.
