Now that Linda Parks is running as a no preference candidate more Democrats are worrying that that a divided field could cause the November election to be a choice between Tony Strickland and Linda Parks.
I am wondering if all of the candidates will end up running.
Democratic activists across the nation are paying attention to CA26 because it could help Democrats take control over the House of Representatives.
What party will she caucus with? If she won't join a caucus for either party she won't get committee assignments. Who will she vote for to be the next Speaker?
Linda Parks has limited her campaign so far mostly to calls for bipartisanship and moderation.
What are her positions on SOPA, NDAA, NCLB, DADT, and Afghanistan? What about Citizens United? The payroll tax cut? Healthcare Reform?
She hasn't been talking about these issues. She isn't appearing at the forums Democrats are organizing. Are there going to be forums for all of the candidates before June?
Democrats worried about Linda Parks and Tony Strickland making the top two seem to want to convince someone to drop out. But who would be open to dropping out?
This post on DailyKos.com seems to be representative of the views of many establishment liberals who are supporting Julia Brownley.
Should one or more of the candidates drop out for the good of their party? If so, which candidate?
