It is simple.
He represents his district’s stakeholders the way they want him to.
Mr. DesJarlais’ opponents have been reduced to attacking his past, not his record. Tennessee’s 4th Congressional District is a very conservative district.
Mr. DesJarlais is well known in his district and more importantly, votes the way his constituents want him to.
Today, most politicians go to Washington telling the voters they will do one thing and in reality do just the opposite.
Mr. DesJarlais is a welcome change from that.
He does what the people who put him in office want him to do. That makes him the best politician in Washington.
