Longtime lawmaker Tzachi Hanegbi has dropped from the eighth spot on the Likud list to what likely will be the unrealistic 46 spot after a horrendous showing in yesterday’s primaries.

Hanegbi is one of the longest-serving lawmakers in the Knesset, entering in 1988 with Likud and serving the party every election since, except for a four-year stint in the Kadima party.
