Off the Kuff takes a very early look at potential Congressional races for 2018.

Democrats keep looking for excuses to kick people out from under their tent, and the evidence was everywhere PDiddie at Brains and Eggs looked over the past couple of weeks.  There aren't enough Marches, Resistances, and Revolutions to overcome so much squabbling, backbiting, and infighting.
