Dick Pettys reports that Reps. Richard Royal, Butch Parrish, and Mickey Channell are thinking about jumping ship and running as Republicans this year. Pettyselicits this quote from Rep. Terry Coleman:
Coleman, the former Speaker, said it’s probably up to the party whether the three stay or go.
“The people you’re talking about are conservative Democrats and I think their future depends on the willingness of the Democratic Caucus and the Democratic Party to move more toward the center. If the party does and the caucus does, I think they might stay. And if the party doesn’t and the caucus doesn’t move to the center – where they (Channell, Parrish and Royal) are _ they may leave. It’s just that simple,” Coleman said.
