Nancy Pelosi’s DCCC Has Lost Control In Florida House Primary

Democrats are fighting each other in a contentious primary for an open House seat in Florida’s 18th congressional district, according to a National Journal story this morning. Nancy Pelosi’s DCCC chose Palm Beach County Commissioner Melissa McKinlay as their party’s candidate, but before McKinlay could even announce her candidacy, her colleague Priscilla Taylor announced her bid. And Taylor “responded defensively to questions about whether she should have talked to other Democrats before entering the race.”

“Taylor’s response: It’s a democracy, and she can do what she wants.”

Here again is another example of the internal battle ripping apart the Democratic Party across the country.
