Tom Steyer Trying to Purge Party of Trump-Friendly Democrats

NextGen Climate Action and its founder Tom Steyer are demanding that Democratic congressional candidates swear fealty to the far-left’s dogma, and they’ll use hundreds of thousands of dollars in political attacks to smite anyone in their way.

According to a report from The Philadelphia Inquirer, this refusal to allow any indication of centrism is playing out in a suburban Pennsylvania district. Steyer’s group is going after Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli, a candidate for Pennsylvania’s open Seventh Congressional District.

Morganelli, who toes the line on most Democratic policy positions, occasionally indicates support for President Trump’s immigration policies.

This is enough to trigger Steyer’s involvement in the primary, and his group has committed six figures to stopping any suggestion of moderation:

Groups like EMILY’s List and NextGen Climate Action, founded by liberal billionaire Tom Steyer, are working to make sure the Democratic nominee adheres to the party line on immigration and abortion.

NextGen has budgeted $100,000 for the primary, a spokeswoman said, and has sent voter guides in the mail that highlight the contrasts on those issues with Edwards and Wild.

Experts told the Inquirer that this trend of primary interference will repeat across the country, as Democrats seek to purge all dissent from their selected litmus tests.
