GOP Establishment Runs Up Primary Wins

"In 2014, the tea party insurrection is starting to look more like the Boston massacre," Politico reports.

"In state after state this primary season, entrenched politicians are proving that incumbency counts for something after all, leveraging the stature and financial firepower that comes with high office to demolish challengers from the activist right. In three states Tuesday night, long-serving lawmakers rolled over tea party opponents."

Washington Post: "After years of intraparty turmoil that cost Republicans key races, voters this year are coalescing around the GOP's strongest candidates ahead of November's general election, when control of the Senate during President Obama's final two years in office will be up for grabs."

The Hill: "One of the biggest winners of the night was the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, who saw all of their major endorsed candidates in Georgia, Kentucky, Idaho, Pennsylvania and Oregon net big wins."
