Following this year's midterm primaries, I've noticed a trend: very few races we outsider vs establishment. Instead, the fight seems to be State Establishment vs Washington Establishment. Has anyone else picked up on this?

Not in Idaho but I imagine it would be different state to state.

I think from where I am here in Maine there are legitimate outsiders against a state establishment that's somewhat more benign than the Washington establishment. The outsiders don't really seem to have the media or financial power to compete though.

Good analysis.
Would-be leaders will always notice where the public is going and race to get in front of it.
Thus are causes lost or subverted.

In my state it's been who supports Trump's agenda vs who didn't

Atleast for the Republicans, Dems have been pretty one sided on that issue lol
