A recent Huffington Post article nicely lays out a Democratic battle that will garner national attention: a potential primary between Congressmen David Price and Brad Miller.
Thank Republicans for the political drama -- redistricting bunked the two well-known Democrats in the same district. And as the Huffington Post piece highlights, it could be a bruising battle:
"Neither Miller nor Price are eager to criticize each other before the 2012 map is finalized. But important differences do exist in their voting records. Miller's seven years of work on banking reform and consumer protection have endeared him to progressive activists. Price, meanwhile, was a founding member of the Democratic Leadership Council, the most prominent centrist faction of the Democratic Party, and he previously served as a member of the New Democrat coalition, a group closely attuned to the interests of business executives and prominent corporate shareholders.
Price made a hard political left-turn after the Democratic wave election of 2006, leaving the New Democrats behind and voting as a robust progressive ever since. Meanwhile, Miller's devotion to financial reform, and mortgage issues in particular, have had a tremendous legislative impact."
