You just don't understand that it's better to have Republicans control everything and pass all matter of conservative legislation than to support even one moderate.

PA Indy: Kyle, when will I learn?

I think as long as certain site members continue to remind us that we are basically Barry Goldwater if we don't support the furthest left candidate, eventually we will understand 😉

E Pluribus Unum: Yes I think Jones Stinks, and yes I think he should be primaried, but even politicians I like deserve a Primary Challenge. Cause that's how things should work in a representative democracy.
What exactly stinks about Jones? Centrist Democrats are needed in dark red states and Progressives can run everywhere else. After we take back power we can start bitching at each other. I live in Southern Missouri. Billy Long and Roy Blunt win 65% of the vote here. Jay Nixon, the Democratic Governor from 2009 to 2013, won my county in 2008 and 2012. Both times he was running on a Centrist platform.

Jones is a cosponser of the Equality Act, and that's honestly enough for me right now. But look at his record. He isn't absolutely the worst Democratic Senator (Manchin is imo)

Jones' positions on issues don't matter because it's all about whether Mitch McConnell or Chuck Schumer is running the Senate.

Voting for half of Trumps appointments and voting with Trump 37.2% of the time is a start.

He represents Alabama, not any particular wing of a party. As for the voting percentage, can you cite your source? Even in our hyper partisan environment, a lot of congressional votes aren't that controversial.

Scratch the source, found it on FiveThirtyEight. Where some of the votes for agreement included extending government funding to prevent another shutdown, the 2-year budget deal, opposing the WH's immigration bill, voting for a bipartisan immigration proposal, supporting the 2018 appropriations, expanding private health options for veterans, the 2018 farm bill which passed 86-11. What are you expecting of him?

It's a start. If you give him an inch by not giving him a significant primary challenger he'll just go further right and become a second Joe Manchin

Because a leftist would TOTALLY win in West Virginia, right?

A start?! What do lefties expect of red state Dems and tea baggers of blue state Reps? I know I’ll never get a real answer to that, I’ve been asking folk since I was in college, but jeez!

Bernie won all 55 Counties in the 2016 Dem Primary and Ojeda got 44% in the 2018 Midterms

Yes, it would be a workable strategy if only Democrats could vote in general elections.

Your response is saying a left wing candidate one the democratic primary (not relevant) and that one lost by double digits (disproving your own point.)

He’s going to note that Ojeda’s 2018 showing was an improvement on the 2016 D candidate’s showing, ignoring that the district was held by a Democrat until 2014 and your other points.

Would you rather have someone on your side half of the time or none of the time? If you get rid of Jones, he'll just be replaced by a conservative Republican.

I remember hearing and ignoring this argument in the O'Donnell-Castle primary in 2010. I learned my lesson.
