Rep. Kris Crawford, a Republican from Florence and also an emergency room doctor, supports the expansion but expects the Republican caucus to vote as a bloc against the Medicaid expansion.

Same as it ever was.
This, of course, will never be referred to as identity politics.
Also, they are not racist, just interested in preserving freedom. Or something.
