  •  I should add that Chris Carney was my rep (1+ / 0-)

    and although he was a blue dog, he did vote for the Affordable Health Care Act and some other legislation finally after much coaxing.  He was a heap better than a few other blue dogs  like Altimre and all the Republicans in PA.

    But Carney had a website called CasinoMarino. com that was very good but people ignored it apparently.  But this is a red district, so I am not surprised. They say it was a fluke that a Democrat held the seat for 2 terms but that was because the opposition was accused of trying to strangle his mistress and his next opponent was a piss poor candidate.

    Marino ran for the seat and we never saw one ad with him speaking and he did not even campaign much.  He had friends and money in high places to do it for him.
