Lumping him in with Sinema, who actually had a say in the matter, seems like you are trying to push party in-fighting for no good reason; that's not what you are doing, is it?

They are running for a race this year but we can't afford the in fighting and I specifically asked about what the situation was in South Carolina. I am being very polite by answering but I shouldn't have to prove that I am not formenting fighting by a simple general question and statement.

I'm sure he'll take his sudden name recognition & start a $$$ PAC & run oppo against the Dem candidate.

Because this is exactly how they do it.

He was never really a Democrat.

If this is all it takes to drop away the from the Dem Party, Mr Votour was always a sabatour.

On the way out of the party, Votour criticized former Congressman Joe Cunningham, who is leading the fundraising race in the Democratic gubernatorial primary, specifically citing Cunningham’s vote against a $15 minimum wage while in Congress.

THE TRUTH That Mr Votour Chose To Omit:
In an interview in December, Cunningham said he always supported minimum wage that is in the double digits, but the bill in Congress he voted against would have eliminated tip wages, which would have hurt hospitality workers.

“Congressman Cunningham wishes Mr. Votour all the best as he continues his campaign in another party,” said Trevor Maloney, Cunningham’s campaign manager. “In the meantime, Joe is laser-focused on defeating Henry McMaster in November so we can legalize marijuana, increase teacher pay, and raise the minimum wage to at least $12 an hour.”
