    Republicans in general are more embarrassed that he's a brash loudmouth than anything else. Establishment Republicans don't like him meddling with foreign policy, but what else is new.

    Around here they seem more embarrassed about him being a self serving crook who has taken nepotism and corruption to absolutely breathtaking new heights. Even the Republican mayor of the next city up the road, who is well known for running the most corrupt city government in the state, thinks Trump is an embarrassment and endorsed a Democrat for congress in 2018 over the Trumpist yes man incumbent.

    The word you're looking for is illegal.
    And the reps for those districts have been getting stuff done too.

    Within the constraints imposed by the GOP controlled senate and D'ump himself anyway. I don't really think that anyone expected the house democrats to accomplish anything other than passing some good legislation that would die on the senate floor, which they have done plenty of, and limiting the damage D'ump does, which they have done fairly well.

    Nobody is "swimming left." The guy is just an opportunistic hack who recognizes where the bread is buttered, and understands that aligning with D'ump would be a career ender and cut him off from the graft to which he is accustomed.

    Agreed. And unlike the GOP, they haven't shied away from working with the other side when it made sense to.

    The Space Force / Paid Parental Leave (for federal employees) was a win-win. The GOP couldn't even accept 'yes' from the Democratic Senate from 2008-2016.

    No, he's up next year and likely to be gone.

    Ah but if he flips he might get some Dem votes loyal to him and the GoP?

    He won as a Dem in the anti-Trump wave, and is now switching parties in allegiance to Trump. Do you really see a winning strategy in there?

    If he is gonna lose regardless if he flips and Trump endorses him and GoP voters support him and he keeps a small % of voters loyal to him maybe.

    But he could just split the vote and enable a GoP.

    But yeah doesn't usually work.

    Meanwhile, former Senator Barney Frank is recommending that candidates include "you don't have to live in Kentucky to vote against Mitch McConnell" in their campaign rhetoric. Making an open statement that "we will pursue the truth by working closely with the president's defense team and dismiss the charges as quickly as possible" isn't exactly resonating as planning for a fair hearing.

    Lindsey Graham came out and said quote "I am trying to give a pretty clear signal I have made up my mind. I'm not trying to pretend to be a fair juror here"

    I just watched an interview with Cenk Uygur from the Young Turks, is he running to represent Palmdale? He said it was in the northern part of the district.

    Yeah. Special election chaos, with various people thinking that being "the incumbent" for six months gives them the inside track in November. Unfortunately the only one who has a really good shot is the well known GOP Trumpist hack that got beaten in 2018.
