Its happened before. Ronald Reagan famously used conservative Southern or boll weevil Democrats to build a powerful bipartisan coalition for increased defense spending and substantial tax cutting. Many had tired of their partys drift into inexcusable spending excesses that appeared to give Democrats little political bang for the buck.
