Sinicki to have a G.O.-tea party challenger?

Word on the street is that Rep. Christine Sinicki will have a challenger again this year. Apparently it’ll be a Republican/tea party person.

It’s worth noting that Sinicki handily beat two challengers in the 2008 race. Both were running as Democrats, although their affiliation or loyalty to that ticket extended no further than the line on the ballot. She won the primary, and her seat, 61-24-15 percent.

Now she may have a G.O.-tea challenger. The benefit to that person would be that (s)he wouldn’t lose in the primary. The challenge is to assert that Rep. Sinicki has done something that makes her ouster seem necessary. The supposed air of “oust the incumbents” isn’t enough.
