Stateline Story Suggests One Thing, Says Another

Here'a another one of those news stories where the headline and top half of a story says one thing (that voucher proponents are picking off moderate Republicans in state races) when the reality -- several paragraphs down -- says they're trying but it isn't working.

"...School choice advocates focused heavily on the Republican primaries, hoping to get more conservative yes-votes that could get a bill through the legislature," states the unusually speculative Stateline article (Voucher groups seek to oust opponents). "Still, the election tide isn’t necessarily turning in favor of vouchers." So then shouldn't the headline be, voucher proponents hope to elect more supporters despite past failures?
