so-called Michigan Conservative prefer pro-abortion candidate Mark Schauer

This is certainly why ideologues become problematic in an active and/or functional sociopolitical movement.
Go ahead tea party, sit on your hands. Toss your governor overboard. Help elect Democrat Mark Schauer to be the next Michigan governor. It certainly is an interesting tea party political strategy to help knock off a sitting moderate/conservative Republican only to replace him with a liberal/moderate Democrat. Democrats who are not laughing at you are certainly smiling.
A fine metaphor for this would be to be murder a child if the child doesn't walk. I don't entirely endorse the metaphor. I am not a proponent of the "Medicaid expansion", which to an extent is the buzzphrase we're enduring now. Yet I would not use that as an artificial line marking when I would actively let Mark Schauer of all people be Governor.

Tom Watkins did the explaining for the Lansing State Journal.
