His district is over 85% white, and median income is over 60,000 per year. It's a staunchly red district, but it's pretty obvious that he's ditching because he's worried he's going to suffer an embarrassing loss. drymount that guy.

Unless they're making well over 6 figs, they're still voting against their own interests.

15 years of being forcefed nonsense about the seriousness of Paul Ryan on deficits, and he resigns a day after his only accomplishment as speaker is shown to drive deficits to a trillion a year and growing for the foreseeable future.

Grab n run.

I say Mueller is fired by Monday.

Dump's ego can't take it.
Unless one of his clowns can explain to him, in single syllable words, that its one of his appointees had that search warrant issued and not Mueller.
Probably Rosenstein first, then Mueller.
...because Trump can't fire Mueller. Only the US AG, or someone with that authority," can fire a Special Counsel. Since the AG, Sessions, has recused himself, Deputy AG Rosenstein is that person for the purposes of Mueller's investigation.

So Trump can order Rosenstein to fire him, but Rosentstein would be within his rights to refuse...so Trump would have to fire Rosentstein and replace him with a sycophant, who could then fire Mueller.

The judicial term for this would be "showing your ass," and if this went down I would certainly hope the good people of the USA would storm the White House with pitchforks and torches.
