And it’s an observation because it doesn’t even rise to the level of a HAWT TAEK! In Pennsylvania Tuesday night, John Fetterman demolished establishment and one-time Manchin wannabee candidate Conor Lamb. It’s seen as part of a triumph of progressive candidates in general. Needless to say, moderate Democrats are caterwauling about this.
What has to make this even more painful for centrist/moderate Democrats is the vote breakdown:
While some voters always do weird, inconsistent stuff, I can’t see a mass migration of Kenyatta or Khalil voters to Lamb; Fetterman likely would’ve picked up the majority of their votes. What that means is if those ‘spoilers’ hadn’t been in the race, Lamb would’ve have been crushed by Fetterman even harder.
That’s gotta hurt. Sad, really.
