    ...20 years ago.

    I think we've seen the last Democrat of the Ray Flynn/Stephen Lynch type winning a statewide primary. (And it's not just abortion, though that's a big part of it. It's the same sort of faction that supported John Silber for Governor in 1990, and I think he was pro-choice.)

    A lot of supporters of that faction have passed on, moved out of state, become more like progressive Democrat, or started voting Republican.
