Conservatives in this state had reservations about this guy from the beginning. It seems he shopped himself to the Democrats prior to declaring as a Republican candidate.
He ran as pro-life but had stated in the past he is pro-abortion. But everyone can grow and change.
His wife got volunteer of the year award from the National Planned Parenthood organization.
There is concern that he surrounded himself with swamp rats once he got to DC, but who else are you going to find in DC.
Kaygay, the prosecutor who is charging him is a Republican but I don't know much about him.
There were real conservatives in the primary against him, but maybe too many and Watkins sqeaked by them in a close race.
Not saying he's a bad guy, because I don't know, but there were red flags a plenty.
