NYTimes: Minnick Not An Easy Target

At least a handful of Democrats in the 40 districts are no longer considered to be as vulnerable as Republicans had hoped, largely because their preferred candidates were defeated by more conservative candidates in primaries. Representatives Jason Altmire of Pennsylvania, Walt Minnick of Idaho and Zack Space of Ohio are among the Democrats no longer seen by Republicans as easy targets/Jeff Zeleny, New York Times.

Question: Will the conservatives help Democrats hold Congress by succeeding in nominating right-wing Republican candidates who don't appeal to the general population?
