Will primaries make a difference?

Yesterday we posted news items from across the state about House primary races. Does anybody care? A valid question is, what difference does it make?

There are a total of 25 incumbents being challenged in the primary elections, 8 Democrats and 17 Republicans. According to an article in the San Antonio Express-News,the Republican races find the candidates arguing over who is the most conservative candidate. And I guess the Democrats are just arguing. In the long run the primary races are unlikely to change the winning party in the November general election. But in what appears to be unprecedented anti-incumbent voter sentiment, there will undoubtedly be a few fresh faces to vote for in November. If you want to know who they might be, check out the article for a list of the incumbent contests.
