"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.
Proglican - This political animal adapts with each election and change in the domestic economic landscape and world circumstances. A portmanteau combining “Progressive” and “Republican”.
I was shocked to learn Scott Brown was a Proglican - elected as a Republican but votes like a Progressive.
