  •  Simple. It's that he will be a conservative (11+ / 0-)

    vote in the House.

    Conservatives would rather vote for a person who has a questionable personal life but will be a solid Republican vote than a person with a completely upstanding personal life who will vote against all the things they want.  

    I think for more and more people on both sides of the aisle, Congressional races come down to a simple question -- will that person vote with the Republicans or with the Democrats?  They'd rather have a person with a questionable personal life who votes with their side than a person with no skeletons in the closet but who can be counted on to vote against their side.

    •  Example: Bill Clinton very popular with Dems. NT (1+ / 0-)
