Dems REJECT Progressives, Favoring ‘Hybrid’ Candidates

Democrats are reviving the old strategy of ‘hybrid’ candidates by rejecting labels like progressive and moderate in order to supposedly campaign to both wings of the party. Wisconsin Senate hopeful Mandela Barnes and failed Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe are examples of these ‘purple’ Dems who are moderate Democrats themselves and don't necessarily represent the Progressive wing of the party. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss on The Young Turks. Watch LIVE weekdays 6-8 pm ET. Read more HERE: "Democratic Senate hopeful Mandela Barnes has been endorsed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.), who represent vastly different wings of their party. Why it matters: The Wisconsin lieutenant governor is one of several Democratic candidates this year who aren't embracing or eschewing labels like "progressive" or "moderate." Instead, they're campaigning with a foot in both worlds and demonstrating a new mold — and potential electoral path — for their embattled party. "I know that the only way we can govern at our best is when we have all of these varied interests at the table, all of these varied experiences at the table," Barnes told Axios in an interview. In Georgia's gubernatorial race, Stacey Abrams "has admirers on both wings of her party," the New York Times wrote in a recent article about her ability to transcend labels." *** The largest online progressive news show in the world.
