On a web site devoted to opposing medicaid expansion, the conservative group follows up on that threat by asking supporters to recommend primary opponents for 11 of the 13 Republican state senators. Only Sens. Andy Sanborn (R-Bedford) and Sam Cataldo (R-Farmington) escape the wrath of the RLC.
Day kept the pressure on today writing, “If your Senator votes for Medicaid, tell them to #sand.”
