That's the Pittsburgh winter. We rarely see the sun from Nov-April. The Springs are very wet and don't end until mid-Jun. Pennsylvania is democratic, very Hillary Democratic. If you are looking for no extreme weather and conservative, then mid-southern WV or parts of western VA. Maybe the suburbs around Harrisburg won't be too bad for you. Parts of the Southern Tier and Upstate NY out of the snowbelts would also be an option.

How about somewhere like Prescott, AZ? I've never been, but was looking into it for myself for a while. The weather is nice with no extremes, it doesn't seem too buggy, has things to do outdoors; it's not lush green, but does have scrubby foliage and pine forest. Forest fires are a concern though. I forget the home prices exactly but you may find something in your price range.

You could also look at eastern Washington, or central, eastern, or southern Oregon. Those areas are not excessively rainy and can actually be hot and dry. They are also conservative. If you're bored by Idaho and Wyoming, though, I don't know if those areas of WA/OR would excite you. Jobs are also an issue in many of those areas of OR (can't speak for WA). Bend, in central Oregon, has more to do, but might be out of your price range and does get cold in the winter.

Louisville or Lexington, KY? Not sure how conservative, but not liberal for sure. Weather more moderate. Good size cities, but not extremely large. Housing probably more moderate, too.

Louisville is almost 3 times the size of Lexington and substantially more liberal, but only in a small portion of the metro...Louisville's suburbs are conservative just like most interior American burb. Both are neat cities though.
