He’s in the cen­ter

Tampa Bay Times - - Opinion -

As a life-long pro­gres­sive, I do not con­sider Demo­cratic gu­ber­na­to­rial can­di­date Chris King’s call for re­duc­tion in mass in­car­cer­a­tion, elim­i­na­tion of the death penalty and le­gal­iza­tion of mar­i­juana “left of cen­ter.” The prob­lem is that for the past decade or so Repub­li­cans have moved to the far right — so far right and re­ac­tionary that we la­bel can­di­dates like

Chris King as a mi­nor­ity fringe. He is a cen­trist. He is in the ma­jor­ity.
