Blue Dog Disaster

The Blue Dogs lost big in Congressional races, more than half across the country going down.  As the NC Democratic county chairlady said, “I’d rather have a real Republican than a fake Democrat.”  Five of PA’s congressional delegation have been signed-up members of the Blue Dog Coalition.  Three of those five lost last night: Murphy, Dahlkemper, and Carney.  Now we should work to get rid of Altmire and Holden.
