There is a new thing raising its ugly head in this election cycle. There is some evidence that the Democratic Party is giving support to Trump extremists in their primary races. I have no idea how widespread this is, but I do want to go on record and denounce this practice in the strongest possible terms.

This is dirty tricks politics at its worst and if it ends in even one such Republican finding victory in the upcoming elections then it is a cost too high.

We cannot practice this type of politics and then try and claim a moral high ground against corruption. As Democrats, we must be better than this. If we give any support at all to Republicans, it must be to Republicans that have stood up to Trump corruption.

We need a strong ethical Republican party and the enemy to this admirable enemy is no friend to our democracy.
