he is basically a blue dog and an impressive one, former Marine Us atty. Stark contrast to Trumps guy. Last I heard they had a voting tally issue that was stopping results by he was up with 58% reporting
There once was a guy in the Cove that suggested there was a hidden army of Trump voters that would make the midterms an historic event for Trump

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could vote for the person and what we thought they could accomplish instead of a letter by the name?
I have been very much against the Democratic party because they pushed the blue dogs out and made the progressive way the only way.
I have generally voted Rep my entire life. Will probably vote the other way (depending on candidate) this year.
The GOP is more to blame then Dems for elevating progressives. Look at how many issues there are where the GOP is completely out of touch with the majority of Americans and instead clinging to some special interest. Bad long term strategy and those chickens are coming home, as they say.
CK, my memory may be faulty, but I seem to remember when Nancy Pelosi was speaker of the house, many of the southern democrats, which had to be blue dog democrats to survive, lost their seats to Republicans. If I remember correctly, she did not do much to support them, or to recruit other blue dog Democrats. At least in congress, she made it clear she was not willing to support democrats if they supported her agenda.
Senate, I don’t think Harry Reid had quite the same control. But even in West Virginia, Manchin has been held in check. He even talked about the possibility of switching parties.
