Proglican (progressive + Republican)

"Proglican” (progressive + Republican) is another term for a “RINO” or a “Rockefeller Republican”—a moderate Republican. Scott Brown won the special election for U.S. Senate from Massachusetts on January 19, 2010; on February 24, 2010, he was called a “Proglican.”

“Proglican” has had extremely sparse use;"RINO" seems to be the generally accepted term.

I was shocked to learn Scott Brown was a Proglican - elected as a Republican but votes like a Progressive.
