Republican Primaries in 2014 Suggest Closed Primaries Better for Mainstream Republicans than Open Primaries

Kentucky and Kansas both have closed Republican primaries. This year, so far, the two more prominent wins for establishment Republican U.S. Senators have been in Kentucky and Kansas, where incumbents defeated “tea party” Republicans.

By contrast, the two states with the most prominent wins in congressional races for “tea party” Republicans have been in Virginia and Texas, both of which have open Republican primaries.

    I don’t have any real problem with Open Primaries as long as 3rd Party and Independent candidates have reasonble requirements to get on the General Election Ballot.

  2. Demo Rep

    NO primaries — which are now only producing arrogant extremists in the various gerrymander areas —

    i.e. producing worse and worse communist Donkeys and fascist Elephants


    P.R. and nonpartisan App.V.
