For a Dem politician who barely won a seat in a super conservative, red state, the last thing that he/she should do is start making comments that could be used as ammo by Republicans to win the seat back. This has to be a 'long game' and if things are to truly change for the better in this country, the Dems need to cultivate the idea that Dems aren't the enemy.
That said, the Jones attempt at being bi-partisan by not calling out DJT was about as weak as you can get. If Jones continues to make comments like this, then the metaphorical knives can be sharpened and a more progressive Dem candidate can be run for that seat.
Let's see what he says in the coming months....remember what the alternative is.
