Can Democrats Keep Messing with Republican Primary Voters? (NC)
The Atlantic ^ | 05/06/2014 | Molly Ball

As Kay Hagan, a Democratic senator from North Carolina, pondered her reelection campaign this year, she faced an array of possible Republican opponents. . . . .

Hagan, in a ploy Democratic candidates have increasingly employed in recent years, waded right in. She used her campaign funds to run anti-Tillis ads on conservative talk-radio stations and send mailers that targeted Republican households. The ads attacked Tillis on ethics and for having once said Obamacare was "a great idea" (Tillis says he was being sarcastic). . . .

Patriot Majority was styled to seem like a Tea Party group, with its militia-invoking name and a logo that looked like a Minuteman. But it was run by a former Reid aide and funded mostly by labor unions.

Just look around, right here on FreeRepublic.

You will see a few or more ‘interlopers’.

Trouble is, it’s usually impossible to tell which ones are Putin-financed and Dhimmi-financed trolls/hackers, versus which ones are sincere but naive conservatives.

sincere but naive conservatives.

Sadly they exist !

I can never forget a apparently solid conservative co worker in '08 proclaiming that McCain was not 'pure' enough! And after a bit of 0bama EVERYONE will flock to a 'pure' conservative!

You can see how that worked.

When I see or hear the word rino; the alarms go off!

In Ohio’s 14th district congressional race, the Democrat put out an attack* ad on the opponent he most wanted to face.

A little reverse psychology action.

*the attack was basically an endorement of the “too true conservative”

How is Hagan doing? These knuckleheads think she is a shoe-in. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-tran/politics/election-lab-2014

At a recent GOP event I was a bit disturbed to hear Rep. Cotton was (they said) likely to lose in Arkansas. I sent him another $100.
