      I didn't specify that he had great courage or little courage however in his words: "Courage" is carefully defined in this context to mean "taking an action on principle, knowing that it will likely cost re-election." "Courage means overcoming partisanship, and also means not bowing to any special interest, and instead voting one's conscience. ""

      I'm not sure that voting one's conscience is courageous, but it does show integrity if that's what you said you were gonna do.

      As for buying the election, (and I'm not saying he did or didn't) Nothing can be bought that's not sold. Takes at least two to make a transaction.
