Can I Paint Primer

My wife primed a little today but there is a slight line where i guess it was not sanded down all the way(see pic). Can this still be sanded even though already primed? Anything specific I should do. Thanks you!!

Happens eveytime.
Fill the low spots, sand the high places, reprime.

Once spackle is primed there is no sanding. Sanding will only break the surface of the primer which will require re-spackling anyway. Hit it with a skim of spackle now and don't waste your time. But what do I know?

Can I Paint Primer

Sure you can sand it. Then apply thin layer of compound, sand and prime.
Good Luck!
