There was lots of “Democrats Divided” stuff in the media last week, but it’s not really “Democrats” divided, it’s really just “members of the Democratic state committee,” who matter basically not at all, divided over the party chair.
Some people are having fun imagining this is some proxy fight with deeper roots, but I promise you it isn’t. In reality Tom Wolf is very popular with Democratic voters in every poll, and is having no trouble raising money from any of the party-aligned groups. Regular Democrats love them some Tom Wolf.
It’s fun for political reporters to cover controversy, but covering the tussle over Jim Burn vs Katie McGinty among state committee members as some kind of important division among Democratic voters over the nominee is just silly and inaccurate.
