Democrats have been playing a dangerous game with Republican primaries.
They have been pumping cash and support into the Republican candidates that they think will be easiest to beat in November.
Not only is this not going to work, it’s already backfiring.
Democrats Burned Money to Meddle in Republican Primaries in Colorado, and It Backfired Terribly
On Tuesday, many primary races took place across the country, including in Colorado, where Democrats made news for meddling in Republican primaries, a move in violation of state and federal law, which backfired terribly.
Overall, Democrats looked to have spent what looks to be $14 million, including an estimated $10 million in the Senate race.
Through several different channels, Democrats attempted to meddle in races for governor, as well as U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. Each one of the candidates that they attempted to prop up lost.
Despite efforts from Democrats to meddle, Heidi Ganahl beat Greg Lopez to become the Republican gubernatorial nominee, winning 53.83 percent of the vote compared to Lopez’s 46.17 percent.
When it comes to the Senate, Joe O’Dea beat Ron Hanks by nearly nine percentage points, 54.46 percent to Hanks’ 45.54 percent. As of Friday, an estimated 91 percent of the vote has been reported.
This was their strategy? They thought this would work?

Democrats spent $4 million trying to help Hanks win this primary. A total disaster, and one that endangered Senate Democrats nationwide should be calling for resignations as a result of — that money could have defended their seats https://t.co/U8RkE2QMmI
