Ball is in Democrats’ court

All those high-fives and chest bumps may be for nothing.

As the Seattle PI’s Joel Connelly rightly points out, chatter is growing among Washington Democrats that their gigantic (and likely to grow) field may spell disaster in Washington’s Eighth District.

This phenomenon isn’t unique. Democrats are facing bloated primaries around the country, with little-known candidates turning their ire on one other to get a leg up. As they spend time fighting with one another, their resources are being depleted and the political center of gravity continues shifting further and further left. Eventually, a nominee will emerge saddled with unpopular far-left positions and depleted coffers – and run right into the Republican buzzsaw.

Democrats have a lot to prove in a district that has voted Republican for decades. The early signs are making them queasy – and we are just fine with that.
