Democrats losing control of their activists?

NY Times:

Liberals Wanted a Fight in Montana. Democratic Leaders Saw a Lost Cause.


Tension between party leaders who will not compete for unlikely seats and an energized base loath to concede anything to Republicans risks demoralizing activists.
Well, at least the Democrat leaders have not sicced the IRS on them the way they did Tea Party activist upset with the Obama administration. But the Democrat activists have made some to the same mistakes as the Tea Party groups did pushing candidates without a broad appeal to voters in a general election.  Perhaps they will learn that not everyone shares their dismay at losing to Trump.
