RBH: Tierney's primary was always more of a "Tierney underperformed in elections in 2010/12 partly because his wife was convicted of tax fraud" thing than an ideological thing.

No that's the thing, Moulton didn't campaign on strategy. He did say he was the "progressive" in the race but he never gave policy specifics. He used the "Pass the Torch"/"New Ideas" strategy Eric Swalwell used when he first got elected to congress.
