  •  He's kind of in between the two types (0+ / 0-)

    of coalitions. He didn't run on a joint list with the Democrats, but the national Democratic Party didn't campaign for their own candidate, or not hard, anyway. And he didn't guarantee ahead of time that he would caucus with the Democrats.

    •  The help of the Democratic Party was (1+ / 0-)

      was to help not to the Democratic candidate, and also was to help him with outside money basically attacking the Republican candidate.

      If he take not into account it he deserves not a minimum credit, and he deserves also a strong campaign against him.

      The opportunistic behaviour of going with the majority by some interest is something that we can strongly critizize.

      Still I think not it will be necessary because I see A King very out of touch with the republican Party. Do you imagine A King voting for the Ryan budget as example? It is so difficult for me.

      I think A King engages very well in the first type of coalition except in this type of declarations that seems opportunistic and seems done to take advantage in something. His voting record, his ideology engages very well with the Democratic party until now.

      •  Agreed (1+ / 0-)

        He is pretty liberal and votes like a mainstream Democrat. I don't know why he suddenly decided to be sexist and weird.
