Implications of HCR 18

KMOX is reporting that Russ Carnahan is feeling the sting from fellow Democrats in Jeff City. Eight of the 22 state house Democrats that voted for Missouri's Healthcare Freedom Act (HCR 18) represent portions of Missouri's Third Congressional District (PDF map).

At the top of the list of Democrats that hung Russ out to dry is Michael Frame. I interpret his vote for the resolution as an attempt to move from the left towards the center. Frame will be facing Paul Curtman in November. Paul has a loyal Tea Party following and recently made his international television debut on the BBC.
