Learning From the Other Side
What can Republicans learn from a Democratic State Senate primary
The way that this campaign was conducted on the other side holds some lessons for how primaries ought to be conducted in the Republican Party. The dirtiest that Jeff Yarbro could go against Senator Henry were commercials that showed that, lo and behold, Henry is old. Most Democratic voters, whether they voted for Henry or for Yarbro, didn't seem to care how old Henry was, the issue for many of the Yarbro voters was that Senator Henry was too conservative for their tastes.
