Rachel Maddow: GOP Infighting Doing Dems a Favor


Using the recent Republican primary elections in Arizona, Florida, and Nevada as examples, Maddow argues that the narrative of “Republicans on the march” that some have suggested for the upcoming election isn’t exactly holding up. In Arizona, losing candidate J.D. Hayworth was “singled out and mocked” at a so-called unity event after John McCain won the nomination; in Florida, the unity event was straight-up canceled when Rick Scott came out on top, upsetting Bill McCollum. Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne shows up to posit that the division between “the right Republican Party and the far-right Republican Party” is what’s bringing about the disunity within the GOP.
