View Diary: Mike Bloomberg's PAC targets Debbie Halvorson's obstinacy on guns in Illinois primary (30 comments)

  •  Has Bloomberg targeted any Republican (0+ / 0-)

    pro-gun candidates?
    So far it seems he's focused on Democratic pro-gun candidates.
    I'm sorry, but I doubt his sincerity.

    You can't make this stuff up.

    •  ps. I don't care for any pro-NRA candidates at all (0+ / 0-)

      any where in the country, but every candidate has to be judged based on more than one issue.
      There has to be a calculus of the balance of their views on various issues, and the sincerity with which they will work with other Dems on the broader Dem agenda.

      Also, the dynamics of the particular district have to be considered, and whether there's any chance of getting anything other than a conservadem, etc.

      I'm not making any comment on this particular race.

    •  Pro-gun would be a boon for Republicans (0+ / 0-)

      in primaries, anyway.

      Should wait for the general election.

      •  I understand, but if he goes after pro-gun Dems (0+ / 0-)

        in red districts, then he's going to be effectively guaranteeing gop wins.
        I just don't trust him. Over time we'll see whether he starts hitting the gop as hard as he does the Dems, I'll reserve judgment until then.
