Monday on The Chad Hasty Show, Washington Times columnist and political analyst Matt Mackowiak joined the show to discuss the upcoming mid-term elections and the state of the Democratic Party, both nationally and in Texas.

While talking about the Democratic Party's candidates and their positions on issues, Mackowiak said:

The Democrats are in a very strange place right now. They're really kind of contending with this rabid left-wing base, and it's pulling their party way outside the mainstream, and it's endangering their chances to win major elections in key races.
