A couple of the 27 blue dogs strong conservatives almost always voting with the Repubs, while the others are closer to 50-50 progressive conservative types, so the nays are likely those two.

a true DINO, the real thing.

The second wasn't the other one I was thinking of. It's Jeff Van Drew of NJ, by voting record reportedly one of the many "purple" blue dogs, record of going both ways depending. Probably voted for reelection.

The GOP is no longer those things.

They want us gone, for real.

They WILL work with Russia to do that, by they I mean AT LEAST

FORTY FIVE MILLION adult voting Americans who will aggressively act to REMOVE us from this country.

Impeachment is good, it will get info out there but the TRAITOROUS gop wont indict him and Russia WILL interfere in the election.
