Bill Scher (Real Clear Politics, Politico) and Matt K. Lewis (The Daily Beast, MattLewis.org)

On The DMZ, Matt and Bill react to the latest round of the GOP civil war between the establishment and the Tea Party: the primaries in Georgia and Kentucky. What does the issue of coal in Kentucky show about the politics of climate change? Why is Tom Cotton having such a tough time picking up a Senate seat for the GOP in Arkansas? Why the heck did a conservative blogger break into a nursing home to photograph Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran’s wife? Turning to the scandal at the Department of Veterans Affairs, they consider why the GOP response has been muted so far. Plus: Why Democrats are revolting against an Obama judicial nominee.
