Some ask why Kissell is a Democrat. Good question.
“I’ve heard from hundreds and hundreds of people from my district about their opposition to the health care law,” Kissell told the newpaper. “I voted against it originally and I will vote to repeal it.”He’s talking a good game now, but he’s also looking out for his re-election. That being said, I don’t think he’s bluffing. He’s one of the 17 Democrats that voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt.
According to the Observer, Kissell “also said he doesn’t plan to endorse Obama for re-election and isn’t sure he’ll attend his party’s national convention in Charlotte.”
Kissell will have to work very hard to miss the convention that is almost literally being held in his backyard. As RNC Deputy Communications Director Tim Miller tweeted, Kissell’s district ends about a mile away from where the Democratic National Convention will be held.
So why is he still a Democrat?
