But you are arguing that no Republican should be challenged in the primary?

I read the comment and knew exactly what the poster was saying.

Take the RINO out in the primary if it can be done.

No, just the opposite - the place to challenge RINOs is in the primaries. For instance, I am not supporting Cornyn in the primaries here in Texas. But, if unsuccessful in replacing the RINO in the primaries, we should then get behind the RINO in the election - for the most part, any Democrat will be even worse.

And, to me "electorate" means those who participate in the election process. So, to paraphrase: "Democracy demands the participation of those who are educated and informed."
