    Motivating ANY voters to vote in a primary is hard. Motivating voters to vote in a special primary is a real trek. Motivating opposite-party GOTV in order to stymie a candidate of another party is a real level ten feat. She can't pull this off. We ALWAYS worry about this, and it never happens. There's no evidence it happened in the 2008 primary with right-wing talkers pushing it off the hook. No trace of such a movement was ever found in Ohio where McCain had already locked the GOP side but Hillary and Obama were in a high-profile, round-the-clock media death race on the Democratic side. That there would be enough crossover turnout in this low profile primary to carry a candidate seems like a non-worry to me.

    Jon Husted is a dick.
