But, but, I thought the party had moved to the right and only did this to progressives? What gives?

Anti-abortion Democrat snubbed by party for reelection
The party's campaign arm has declined to endorse Rep. Dan Lipinski, one of the most conservative Democrats, who faces a challenge from the left.
https://www.politico.com/story/2018/02/ ... ois-423431

The seven-term congressman from Chicago, who opposes abortion and voted against Obamacare, marriage equality and immigration reform, is one of the most conservative members of the House Democratic Caucus.

[snip]

Lipinski is one of three co-chairmen of the Blue Dogs, a coalition of center-left Democrats that has been struggling to rebuild since Republicans took back the House, wiping out many of the group’s members, in 2010.

After years of feeling ignored and sometimes shunned by the DCCC — Blue Dogs have said the campaign arm is historically biased toward progressive candidates, even if they aren’t the best fit for a district — this election cycle was supposed to bring a better working relationship between the two groups.

[snip][end]

Everybody thinks the party is against them, and them/their caucus only. It's interesting to watch.

Haha, oh boo hoo.

Both the Blue Dogs and the more "teach them a lesson" type of progs can go cry me an ocean. Flip sides of the same whiny, entitled toddler coin, AFAIC.
