    these "Northeast" Republicans are lapdogs. Most of the year they vote like they were elected from rural Kansas. They're chosen by nauseatingly right wing primary voters & approved in the general election by suburban voters who ought to know better & can't bring themselves to vote for some mildly liberal Democratic candidate.  The Republican bosses give them a longer a leash on selected votes involving Northeast issues, but yank it in when strict obedience is called for. They have no real power.  King is their go-to guy when they need a Repug  shooting off his mouth on local  TV & radio on homeland security topics. He keeps it up they may just switch to the more ideologically pure Scott Garrett, the nutball from North Jersey.
