Dempsey Plays in GOP Primaries

Pro tem-in-waiting Tom Dempsey gave $5K checks to Republicans David Pearce and Gary Romine in Senate primaries.  Sen. David Pearce is an incumbent colleague, but Gary Romine isn’t.  Romine’s challenger is tea party material which would make a general election victory impossible in that district.  But this all signifies that the Senate Republican’s campaign committee is not playing in primaries having been burned by doing so in the past.  Thus Dempsey’s taking the charge on himself.
