Empty Primary Threats

Ah the trip down memory lane… Talk Radio Host Dana Loesch and Rep. Jay Barnes have a testy exchange on her show in November 2012.

 

Barnes:  “Dana, all the arguments are made are counterfactual…. I’m dealing with facts… What matters is what the bill actually says… You want me to cite you the statute in federal law?.. If you want to live in a fantasy world…  You want to ignore the underlying facts of the law.”

 

Loesch:  “And I will work to primary you out of office.  I will work to primary you out of office. That is the consequence… And that is why I am going to primary this man…”

 

Listen to it here.

 

Sixteen months later…. Rep. Jay Barnes is unopposed in the primary and general.
