Not really Phil. Lamb ran as a Conservative Dem. and was far to the right of the national D party. It's almost comical that he did that, but should put the Rs on notice that the Dems are gonna "bring it" in the midterms!


This is really interesting because I think Lamb is challenging the idea of what it means to be a Democrat and by extension what it means to be a Republican. What are the borders of these parties? What is the unifying ideology? I've read both parties' most recent platforms and the Republicans of today are unrecognizable to me compared with the Republican party of the 1990s. Where does a person who is socially liberal but fiscally conservative fit in the political spectrum today? Neither party seems to have room for those voters.


This is from one of his campaign ads... wouldn't call that a typical democrat. At least, in today's society.
