One response to “Incumbent Democrats face two-front campaigns”

    Whitehouse may have a serious challenger in Flanders but I can’t see how any progressive can take an anti-gay, anti-choice candidate like Fontes seriously, least of all on the environment where Whitehouse has a 98% pro-environment voting record on issues that Senators actually deal with, and is the leading Senate voice calling attention to ocean protection (crucial for RI) and climate change. While I do disagree with him on his Yemen vote, I can;t expect perfection and we should all see how not helping the imperfect Clinton in November 2016 has made things worse for so many in so many ways.
    As for Flanders in Burrillville, of course he will do well there, they voted strongly for Trump so the environment cannot be much of an issue there beyond understandably not wanting the industrial power plant in their backyard.
