GOP strategist Rick Wilson said Republicans should consider going on a “case-by-case” basis and vote for some Democrats. “I think conservatives have to make a case-by-case choice — there are actually some Democrat candidates out there who functionally now are to the right on economics of their Republican counterpart. It’s astounding,” Wilson said on Hill.TV. He said that not all Democrats are Bernie Sanders supporters. “There are certainly people out there on the Democratic side who are not running as ‘Bernie Bros’ or as ponytail Che Guevara, and they are working pretty hard to represent their states and districts,” Wilson said. The Republican Party is now a “political monoculture” that the president leads, said Wilson, and “a Republican in Alabama has to run the exact way as a Republican in Virginia or Vermont or Montana or California — they all have to be Donald Trump." … [Read more...] about GOP Strategist: Republicans Should Vote for Some Dems

Jennifer Rubin, The Washington Post Published 9:06 am PDT, Friday, August 10, 2018 This week the Congressional Budget Office released a report "showing how the federal budget and the nation's economy would evolve under three alternative scenarios. In those scenarios, laws would be changed to continue certain policies now in place, leading to even higher debt."

All are Republican. In a year when congressional Republicans are clinging to the president like tomato vines to a trellis, Republican governors running for re-election in the heavily Democratic states of Maryland, Massachusetts, Vermont and, to a lesser degree, Illinois have emerged as well-positioned incumbents who seem likely to survive an expected blue swell in November. A crucial mix of bipartisanship — which stands in welcome contrast with Washington — aggressively mild temperaments and gentle checks on liberal proclivities have … [Read more...] about Republican Governors in Blue States Find a Way to Get Along
