Indiana Dems getting a little ahead of themselves?

From HoosierAccess:

With Joe Donnelly’s announcement that he would be running for the U.S. Senate, the Indiana Democratic Party immediately sent an e-mail announcing that he would be “our next U.S. Senator.” Aren’t they getting a little ahead of themselves? It’s normal for political parties to announce their nominee as “our next (fill in the blank)” but Donnelly is not the nominee yet. He is not even on the May 2012 primary ballot yet. That will not happen until next January.

It is possible, after all, that Donnelly will have a challenger in next year’s primary election. Shouldn’t the Democrats wait and see before anointing Donnelly? Do Democrats have a problem with allowing their own voters to choose their nominees in a contested primary election? History indicates that is the case.

I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground that ‘all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people.’ To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, not longer susceptible of any definition. — Thomas Jefferson, Opinion on the Constitutionality of a National Bank, February 15, 1791
