Do Republicans Still Have a Primary Problem?

Charlie Cook: "Republicans' path to a Senate majority is a narrow one. Not everything has to go right for the GOP to win the six seats they need for a majority, but they can't afford many errors either, particularly those that are self-inflicted. In the last two election cycles, Republicans suffered enough self-inflicted errors to cost their party Senate seats. These errors largely came in the form of contested primaries that produced nominees who were poorly positioned to win statewide general elections."

"While some Republican activists seem to have learned the lessons of 2010 and 2012, it is clear that not everyone got the memo."
