I've ranted enough about this race today, so I'll spare Atlas of my diatribes against Nolan, Frey, Kennedy, and Radinovich. Godspeed Phifer, you'll need it for the August primary.

Apparently progressives aren't too excited about a former ICE deporter, who knew?

I don't think that there's anything wrong with working as an ICE agent, just like how I don't blame the individual soldiers for fighting in wars that kill countless innocents and ruin the lives of even more.

Like it or not, unless we completely open up our borders, somebody has to do what ICE does. We can talk all about disbanding ICE, but its duties will just be transferred along to another federal agency.

That doesn't mean we need to send someone who worked for them to Congress. Especially with a strong proven politically experienced. progressive as an alternative.

I think sending an ICE agent to Congress wouldn't be the worst thing ever to happen. Having somebody who has actually had to sign off on the warrant of deportations and see how immigration laws actually affect families would be nice for a change.

I liked Radinovich before this whole mess of a caucus, but his brand of politics is trash. No more backroom deals, no more dirty politicking, and no more untruthful smears against fellow Democrats. His whole smear campaign against Phifer seems eerily similar to Lipinski's awful attacks against Newman.

This tweet is basically how I feel about Phifer working for ICE.

I think most people are worried more about Phifer's environmentalist stance than her past working for the ICE.

You'd be surprised. People are treating her like she personally dragged away a hundred kids into Mexico.

I support Radinovich cuz Phifer's environmental stances makes them far more likely to lose.

The parties picking a preferred candidate is a terrible way to run things.

Yes, because Obama was so great on immigration issues.

If Nolan is supporting Radinovich I'm happy supporting him. Nolan is a solid progressive in my book.

So Phifer went from running a hopeless campaign to beat Nolan in a primary to now being the frontrunner to be the nom? How did this happen? Never really seen someone with so few ties rise that fast.

What makes Phifer the frontrunner? He didn't get the endorsement today.

Well obviously Nolan dropping out might've played a role...

And I wouldn't call her the frontrunner. Radinovich has the connections needed in this district.

Would you be willing to vote for a veteran of the Stasi in Germany? For a police veteran whose career spanned through Apartheid in South Africa?

Phifer isn't the frontrunner. She is opposed by labour in a labour-heavy district and now she seems to have lost a big chunk of progressives too because of her work at ICE.
