Weak Tea

So much for the Tea Party being the wave of the future:
Mark the first round down, shakily, for Republican incumbents and party establishment favorites.

Tea party-backed challengers and other outsiders were shut out in competitive House and Senate primaries across three states on Tuesday night, the busiest night so far in an election season of optimism for Republicans.

While some of Tuesday night's Republican primary winners struggled to prevail; former Indiana Sen. Dan Coats' comeback bid advanced with 40 percent of the vote in a five-way race; the results renewed a debate about the clout of the insurgents in the remaining primaries and on elections this fall.
