Moderate Democrats are warning that their party is headed in a dangerous direction with far-left primary challengers trying to purge centrists from Congress.
The New Democrat Coalition — which boasts 98 members or nearly half of House Democrats — issued a plea to grow the party from the center as the group marked 25 years in Congress.
“A strong center is the key to our governing majority and our battleground members are an important line of defense against extremist control of Congress,” said Rep. Ann McLane Kuster, a New Hampshire Democrat and the New Democrats’ vice chair for communications. “As we look ahead, we must continue to embrace the growth of moderate members.”
Centrist Democrats are most at risk of losing their seats in the midterms with both Republicans and far-left Democrats going after them.
Rep. Kurt Schrader, a member of the New Democrat and more conservative Blue Dog Coalition, is poised to lose his race against liberal challenger Jamie McLeod-Skinner by double digits when the last of the votes are counted.
