There's a thought-provoking diary up at Daily Kos tonight, an analysis of election results that is pretty darn compelling. Check it out.
Having comprised 10 % of the Democratic Party's caucus in the 113th Congress, the Blue Dogs will have accounted for 50% of the Democratic Party's lost seats (7 of 14 seats) during the 2014 midterms. Members of the centrist New Democrat Coalition account for the balance of lost seats. The largest membership organization within the Democratic Caucus, the Congressional Progressive Caucus, lost no seats to Republicans.
Who knew that taking a stand for people could be a winning strategy? We did.
