The supposed logic behind the switch to the top-two primary was to get all candidates to run their campaigns, from the start, directed at everyone in the district across the political spectrum, instead of first catering to the small group of primary voters in each party. So, the candidates are basically already running what we would consider big, expensive, general-election-style campaigns for the “primary,” and they will need to sustain this big, general-election-style campaign for the months until the runoff election.

In a fairly impressive feat of organizing, Marcy Winograd, the progressive challenger to Jane Harman in California’s 36th District, was able to pull Harman’s state party endorsement after amassing enough objections from state party delegates

As Jane Hamsher noted today, Marcy Winograd, the progressive challenger to Jane Harman in CA-36, released a letter savaging Harman for her support of the Eshoo amendment on biologics in the Energy and Commerce Committee.
