DescriptionLast week, I looked at the 2006 Democratic Party Primary for U.S. Senate and voiced my dismay at this quote:

But state Democratic Party Chairman William Lynch said: "It's never a good thing to have primaries."

In an effort to wipe the egg off his face, Lynch showed up at a Brown fundraiser and his quotes suggest he is quite shellshocked:

State Democratic Party Chairman William Lynch said his presence at the Hi-Hat didn't necessarily mean he would support Brown over former state Attorney General Sheldon Whitehouse, who is expected to announce today his candidacy against Brown in the Democratic primary.

"The party may or may not endorse someone in a primary," Lynch said. "There have been times when the party has, and there have been times when the party hasn't."
