Herald Endorses Moulton for Congress against Tierney

Time to kill 15% Rule before it kills the Dem Party…

An even more provocative suggestion from the author, in the comments: "Eliminating the convention altogether and putting that money toward local party-building efforts would be money better spent." Has the convention outlived its usefulness?

As I've stated previously, I don't particularly like the 15% rule, and would favor dropping it if the primary were moved to earlier in the year. On the other hand, I see the value of candidates proving some ability to create an energized grassroots organization early in the process. I just wish there were a way to do that without also seeming anti-democratic, and that's how the rule seems to me. - promoted by david
