I used my print column today to talk about the debacle surrounding the three endorsed Democrats being tossed from the May primary ballot in a petition challenge.
There is a lot of finger-pointing going on, with laments of how this is what happens under one-party rule and a system that is less than friednly to Democrats.
All of that may be true.
It doesn't change the fact that this wound was largely self-inflicted.
The Democrats vow they will appeal all the way to the state Supreme Court.
In the meantime, they will need to mount a write-in campaign for the primary in order to qualify to be on the ballot in the November general election.
