Tell the DNC: Primaries Are Good, Actually

Since 2018, Democratic party committees have worked as hard to stop primary challenges from unsatisfied Democrats as they have to beat Republicans. 

Many voters think Congressional term limits are a good idea because they see that the current leadership isn’t representing their interests, and can’t see any other way to dislodge them. 

Primary elections do the same thing, but better. Primaries keep Representatives accountable to the people who elected them. And a strong challenge can energize even a good Senator, and make sure that they focus on delivering for the people.

From the AOC to Joe Kennedy III/Ed Markey, primaries energize the party. Instead of blacklisting people for refusing to “wait their turn,” the DCCC, DSCC and DNC should be encouraging primary challenges.
