The point is the old eastern establishment - Rockefeller Wing Republicans have never forgiven conservatives for their takeover of the Republican Party. I hasten to add that despite their increasingly liberal votes on key issues, it hasn't prevented the Democrats from going after them. The demographics in Northern districts are not favorable to conservatives. As it is in many Northern States, the GOP is on life support. In our lifetime, I don't think we'll see a conservative Republican elected to the U.S Senate from the Northeast and California. There are just too many Democrats there to preclude an electoral breakthrough.

Agree to disagree however I think a conservative can win in Washington State or Oregon.
