Democratic primary: Will wonders never cease?
In Concord, Henniker, Hopkinton and Warner, Democratic and independent voters have a choice between Kass Ardinger and Dan Feltes for Senate. The district is among the most Democratic in the state, so winning the primary is considered tantamount to being elected. As such, the primary has become something of a race to the left wing, with both candidates trying to out-progressive the other.
While we may not be enthused about the prospect of either candidate’s pending service in the state Senate, at least both are capable of doing the job and serving in office. State Democrats shouldn’t be so afraid to let democracy burst out like this more often. The sky is not falling.
