Runoffs Not Kind to Incumbents

The Fix: "We looked at six times since 2000 in which an incumbent has faced a primary runoff, and then compared the primary vote totals to the runoff totals in each race. In all but one case, the challenger took at least 75 percent off the votes that were 'up for grabs' in the runoff, and in two of those cases, the incumbent actually lost votes in the runoff."
