#1 Working on a book deal? There is no chance he would ever get elected, so get some donor's money for his retirement, and an advance on a book?

#2 Should have pretended to be a republican until the 2024 elections. He might have gotten someone to listen to him in the post-Trump era but now he’s a squeaky voice in a crowd of screaming zealots.

#7 Spoiler for MI in 2020. Since he's been known as a Republican (albeit in name only) there is the possibility he will pull votes.

#8 Paleo and Syrian Christian parents. No wonder he's messed up. Read up on him at Wikipedia, and see he's all over the place, politcally. Libertarian, but a firm believer in the Constitution. So he says. Could be the only sane one in DC.

#9 Interesting, Bobby. After reading his Wikipedia page, it seems to me that he was doing fine — albeit clung a little too closely to his ideals rather than engage in the kind of dealing necessary to get things done — until Donald Trump was elected. But in the end being a NeverTrumper was more important, which is not an effective position.
