20. This is understandable. House Democrats don't want to lose the majority because "real Progressives"

 

have a fantasy idealism about Democratic purity ... and end up losing seats to actual Republicans because of it. Sure you can Primary someone who isn't pure, but if you then lose that seat to a Republican, this ideolistic purity has now just cost us a valuable seat.

The Republicans have done the same thing and have lost sure seats because they've nominated pure far right Republicans.
