Democrats Spend Extra Millions in California Primary to Avoid ‘Disaster’

By Adelle Nazarian

Democrats are reportedly spending millions of extra dollars in California in an attempt to prevent a primary “disaster” that would hurt their goal of regaining control of the U.S. House of Representatives this year.

The problem they face in several Republican-held districts they hoped to win is that they have too many candidates. Under California’s “top two” or “jungle” primary, the top two finishers in the June 5 primary will advance, regardless of party. But there are so many Democratic candidates in some primaries that they may split the vote enough for two Republicans to finish in the top two spots, shutting Democrats out of the November contest.

According to a report in last Friday’s New York Times, the Democratic Party “and allied groups are spending more than $4 million on just three campaigns, intervening in one contest to prop up a favored candidate; attacking a Republican from the right in another; and even reminding people not to waste their votes on ‘ghost candidates’ who have dropped out yet remain on the ballot.”
