You have a typo: Democratic primary.
It’s the Democratic Party:
And it was the Democratic Party Primary.
No biggie. But killing the “ic” makes you appear uneducated.

No silly rabbit, we do it very intentionally — because Democrat rhymes with words like “bureaucrat,” or just plain “RAT.” We do it to irk people like you.

further to Will’s point… there is nothing DemocratIC about the Democrat Party’s platform and goals.

Thanks for the info, Jake.
In this case, it was a deliberate spelling, though it was “inspired” more by the actions of the RI state party. As George said, democratic implies acting for the people. Such a motivation has been too often absent during the decades that the RI Dem Party has been in power. Exhibit A is the state budget, not to mention the attendant tax ranking that arises from it.
