I went to a local Democratic Club fish fry this weekend and set up the sound system. Almost everyone there except me and the musicians was a candidate, married to a candidate or on the central committee. There may have been 40 people at the height of the event. The level of popular enthusiasm was underwhelming.
This is the problem with Democratic Party voters. They only come out during Presidential election years and don’t care otherwise. I predict big losses for the Dems in the house and Senate this year.
