    (friend of a family member) has always been "moderate." (So to speak.) I would never have voted for him (luckily I never had to make that choice) but I remember during the W years he was really upset by the bullying going on in the House. He was very publicly opposed to the war, but there was some kind of event where they kept him up all night - I have no idea what kind of threats they issued - but he suddenly turned at the last minute. I know he told a story about the GOP leadership threatening peoples' families. Like I think they told one guy they'd keep his kid out of the college he applied to. So not like Godfather threats, but still, stupid shenanigans that pissed off a lot of moderates.
