Liberal Democrat politicians govern from the left, often the extreme, far left. But when it is re-election time, they run hard to the right, knowing that liberal voters aren’t really paying attention (because they never do, otherwise they wouldn’t be liberals), but conservative voters are paying close attention.
Thus, in an effort to gain conservative votes, they distance themselves from liberal Democrats, even resorting to bashing fellow Democrats if they happen to be losing in the polls to their Republican challengers. The worse they are losing in the polls, the more intense the bashing.
Case in point: Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill who is well behind her Republican challenger in the polls. McCaskill is slamming Hitlery Clinton and fellow Democrats, hoping to pick up conservative voters. I don’t think it is going to work. Likewise, North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp.

Heitkamp (D-ND) added her name to the growing list of Democrats who have expressed displeasure with Hillary Clinton after the former presidential nominee’s disparaging comments regarding Trump supporters during a recent trip to India, according to NTK.
While appearing on a radio show earlier this week, Heitkamp was asked when she thought Clinton would, “ride off into the sunset.”
“I don’t know, not soon enough, I guess,” Heitkamp responded.
KFGO host Joel Heitkamp, who is Heitkamp’s brother, asked her to clarify her remarks.
“Not soon enough,” Heitkamp repeated.
Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) also expressed displeasure with Clinton’s comments, telling the Washington Post that she found them to be “fighting words.”
“Numerous Democratic operatives have also expressed their displeasure with Clinton since her controversial remarks.
