It's a state mandated primary. It's a primary.

RP: What do you mean, RBH? Where do they show up?

in the graph/container here: [Link]

gonna note that this race isn't attached to the national Dem primary race. Similar to non-binding races in 2008.

The site needs a way to distinguish between races that actually mean something and ones that don't. Would you prefer adding another Race Type of "Meaningless Primary" so it says "Primary"?

I have removed Straw Polls from the ContainerHistory page. Might be better to use the Winner Takes Seat checkbox, but I don't know how well that's populated for older races.

Parent Race has some quirks that make it questionable in usage. And it isn't always set properly. Plus, the query for it is difficult and slower.

Or it could just say primary. You might think it's meaningless but the 600K people who voted would disagree. It should be categorized as a primary because that's exactly what it is.
