Election 2010: Conservative Democrats Trounced; Progressive Democrats Barely Unseated

The conservative Blue Dog Democratic caucus suffered massive losses – 48 percent of the Blue Dogs or 26 of its 54 public members, including two of its four co-chairs were defeated. Meanwhile, only five percent or four members of their much larger Progressive Democratic caucus lost their seats. The Progressive Caucus has a public membership of 84 members that will likely grow as a result of the election of several new progressives.
