Does the Tea Party Still Have Juice?

Morning Line: "The midterm election primary season kicks off in earnest Tuesday with elections in North Carolina, Ohio and Indiana. Get this: There are 13 states with primaries in May. It's always nice when instead of just talking about races, you get results. The overarching question for May: does the tea party still have the juice? In races this month in places like Kentucky and Georgia, 'establishment' candidates appear poised to beat conservative challenges. But in North Carolina, Texas and Idaho, the tea party is once again threatening."

Here's the May primary calendar:

May 6: Indiana, North Carolina, Ohio
May 13: Nebraska, West Virginia
May 20: Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania
May 27: Texas runoff
