Cuellar Wins Primary

I'm a few days late on reporting this, but last week, Representative Henry Cuellar (D-TX) won his hotly contested primary. Cuellar, an independent-minded, center-left Democrat had been challenged from his left in a race that attracted national attention, particularly from far left activists who branded Cuellar a traitor to the party.

Fortunately for Cuellar, the final decision was up to his constituents. I would like to know how much time, energy and money the far left wasted on trying to oust Cuellar. Time, energy and money that would have been far better spent trying to get more Democrats in congress (rather than trying to purify the ones that are already there).

Congratulations, Representative Cuellar. You're continuing to prove that Democrats come in many forms and don't have to conform to the agenda of the far left.
