  • Is Conor Lamb the Next Big Democratic Upset?

    Here's a maverick:

    Lamb, a square-jawed 33-year-old Marine Corps officer who resigned from his job as a federal prosecutor in Pittsburgh to run, has a chance to upend the districtís politicsóas long as he can avoid being labeled a liberal without discouraging the districtís not inconsiderable Democrat base from turning out. A devout Catholic, Lamb is pro-union and pro-gun, backs bipartisan deals for fixing Obamacare and the nationís infrastructure, wants more job training and less college debt, and says heís pro-fracking but pro-environment, too. And heís betting that this mix of economic populism and moderate social politics can win the predominantly blue collar district.

    A DNC moderate with sensible stances.

    A dangerous thing. Luckily his own party doesn't care much for moderates. Pelosi and the old guard still have considerable pull.

    We shall see.
    Any man can hold his place when the bands play and women throw flowers; it is when the enemy presses close and metal shears through the ranks that one can acertain which are soldiers, and which are not.
