Look, There’s Pretty Much No Way Pelosi Likes This District’s Representative Next Year

by Jim Geraghty

I’ve heard some Democrats speak quite eagerly about defeating Parker Griffith, the House’s newest Republican. Griffith will have a GOP primary, where Les Philip is reminding primary voters about Griffith’s past donations to Howard Dean and Harry Reid.

I think the experience of Griffith suggests that this district is likely to bedevil Democrats for a while; it elects either the new switched Republican, a new veteran Republican, or a Democrat determined to represent a group of conservative voters, who is destined to give Nancy Pelosi fits.
