It’s the very last bit of his latest blog post. The idea that Senate candidates and the eventual nominee will have to be not only on guard to prevent their own “Akin moment,” but will have to be prepared to handle that of any GOP nominee anywhere, without getting some of it stuck on their shoe. I hadn’t considered that before today.
The Republican primaries with the most general election ramifications this year are races without a GOP incumbent, including Georgia, North Carolina, Alaska, and Colorado.
That being said, a rhetorical trainwreck from one GOP candidate anywhere will, at least temporarily, force the entire party onto the defensive as all Republican candidates will be asked to affirm or denounce the remarks.
