This is getting interesting. Both R and D candidates, chosen by the National parties are being challenged.

The Pres offers yet another attempt to entice a challenger way from running by offering a position in the administration ... and the R candidates are really swinging at each other.

It occurs to me that the Pres does not help himself or his party in DC by doing this ... if the un-favored challenger should win election the administration will already have made these people less beholden to party lines. With Ds already now showing lack of solidarity on issues, this cannot be a great help to the D agendas in DC. Guess the administration figures that their favored candidate will win the primary ... though that didn't happen with Sestak here in PA.
