    was designed by the California Republicans for just such a scenario, typical Republicans can't win in a fair fight so they have to change the rules. As it turns out though the open primary law handed the State Congress over to a Democratic supermajority. And the outlook for the state has never been brighter.

    •  Pelosi was the primary target of that, IIRC (1+ / 0-)

      The only way Pelosi can realistically lose re-election is to another Democrat, so the Republicans pushed for (and got) an open primary in an attempt to get Pelosi out of office via another Democrat defeating her in a general election.

      That didn't work for them, at least in 2012: she drew a Republican opponent in the general election, which she overwhelmingly defeated.

      My parents made me a Democrat. Scott Walker made me a progressive.
