Primary Elections Today: AL, MS, NM

Tonight, I'll be watching the AL-05 race closely where Les Phillip is challenging Parker Griffith in the Republican primary. Of course, this will test the "anti incumbency" meme.

What interests me more than "does the turncoat, Griffith, survive?" is if challenger Les Phillip's association with Base Connect is fruitful.

Base Connect is a direct-mail service that has been accused by many Republican clients to be money drainers with no results to prove their worth. But they sucker them in nonetheless and many candidates end up spending 80 to 100 percent of their Cash on Hand are left broke and tattered after their election loss. (Anh Cao (R-LA) seems to be their next victim. But we'll find out in November. Cao has spent a majority of his money on Base Connect.) Phillip may just pull it off, which would be a much-needed win for Base Connect.

I was rooting for Parker Griffith... At least he switched to the right team.

Nobody likes a turncot it appears, whether in Alabama or Penn.

What does liking coats (I assume the Senate candidate in Indiana, rather than the article of clothing you would wear) have to do with Alabama?
