Senator Caesar Chavez...
>Senator Pat Robertson
In the same party as Deputy Governor Cuomo...
think that's something?
Are both in the same Party in Congress
I would vote republican still ITTL but I would vote for Kent Hance just because he's from Lubbock. Hadn't had a governor from Lubbock since Francis Lubbock himself.
Even if the New Deal Coalition hasn't exactly been retained, at least the weirdness of it has.
That will be a hell of a big tent. I have a feeling that will bite the progs in the ass eventually...
Jerry Brown needs to win a seat in CA, Progressives could have a field day there.
Minaprogressivism is, for the most part, a leftist approach to libertarianism. Paul is on the right wing of that, yes, but one could easily see his views fitting general social liberalism.
Jerry Brown just lost his third major statewide race for Senate against Ed Meese as a Progressive, but the results were 33.5% Meese - 32.8% Brown - 31.7% John Tunney. You can't keep Moonbeam down
> Pat Robertson
My general feeling:
I can't see Ron Paul being a social liberal, it just doesn't mesh with my OTL understanding. I still wish there was a strong Left that wasn't a fringe third party.
But, if it takes my last breath, I will see the rise of Supreme Leader Brown to the Governorship!
Social liberal, no. But socially libertarian in a party where "Keep the Government out of my private life" is the mantra, yes.
Man, the Left has just been taking a beating ITTL, haven't they?
New Senate map:
So much purple.
I love this.
Shame Jay Rockefeller didn't win. But considering that TTL 1982 saw Senator Pat Robertson, Progressive Ron Paul, and Speaker of the House Roy Cohn, I think I know what '86 will bring for the Empire State...
*The governor-elect gives his victory speech*
Please, have mercy.
Running on his 2000 platform.
Ron Paul may not like the federal government getting into people's private lives, but he's perfectly fine with the state governments doing so.
