lol, maybe "Republican-lite" is really centrist Democrat. The GOP boarded the crazy train in '08, left the station at full speed.Candidate quality does matter, as does where they stand on issues. Democrats running as Republican-lite in red leaning districts is indicative of other sentiments and priorities across the voting populace. Hard to solve say the gun violence issue when part of your coalition will favor a 2A hard line vote.
The only bad result is when you lose a seat. Will be interesting to see if Conor Lamb is able to hold his.
