This is the most interesting Pennsylvania Primary I can remember in all my born days.

...many voters are taking a hard look at this upstart. Barnette, 50, is a political commentator, author and home-schooling mother who has criticized public education and undocumented immigrants. In a campaign video and multiple interviews on conservative media, Barnette has said that she was born in southern Alabama to a 12-year-old mother who was raped. She was raised in poverty and eventually joined the Army National Guard before launching an unsuccessful bid for Congress in 2020.

Barnette, a fierce opponent of abortion, gun control and universal health care, has spent much of her campaign attacking some of the Democratic Party’s most influential leaders. And in her book titled, “Nothing to Lose, Everything to Gain: Being Black and Conservative in America,” Barnette argues that liberal policies have failed Black Americans — a point she has mentioned on the campaign trail...

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Sensing a threat in Pennsylvania’s U.S. Senate race, Donald Trump issued a warning Thursday that surging Republican candidate Kathy Barnette would upend the GOP’s chances of holding the seat in November and urged voters to back his pick, celebrity heart surgeon Mehmet Oz...

Before a roomful of Republican donors Monday, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy praised Donald Trump as the “secret weapon” in the GOP’s quest to retake Congress, while Trump returned the favor by saying McCarthy had been with him from the beginning, according to two people in attendance at the event in Dallas.

***

But their united front disguised far more complicated relationships that have developed between the former president and elected Republican leaders like McCarthy — a fact that is now playing out in a series of primary proxy battles across the country. From Nebraska and Idaho to Pennsylvania and Georgia, Republicans have been actively campaigning — or quietly maneuvering — against Trump’s picks in a way that could undermine his sway over the party...

pb's made the point, very effectively, that the GOP is the party of openness and inclusion. A case in point. This is what happens in a political culture where everyone is welcome and anyone can have a voice.

It's what Rush used to call, "The open market of ideas."

Is it any wonder that the GOP has a historic lead in the Enthusiasm Gap!
