I'd be happy to have him, but isn't he ultra-liberal?

Socially, I'd say so. Fiscally he's fairly moderate. Reminds me a lot of Jim Jeffords.
Yeah, and didn't he caucus as a Democrat after becoming and Indy?

Yeah, but from your stance, would you rather have someone who will caucus with you when you have the majority or a progressive?

Because the only Republican who has a remote chance is focusing on Michaud's seat, and he's not as skilled as Olympia Snowe or Susan Collins.

If he did caucus with Republicans, I wonder how he'd vote. I'd assume he'd ideologically migrate to the right and vote similarly to Collins, but you never know.

Also, I think it's possible he was just honestly answering a question with no ulterior motive, but I wonder if either a)Democrats recently did something to piss him off (somehow I don't think pay equity would be the reason), and/or b)this is some kind of power play (maybe for better committee assignments?).

I was provided with additional input that was radically different from the truth. I assisted in furthering that version.

King is literally a centrist, so this probably make him the most left-wing member of the Republican Party.
