View Diary: NRA expected to roll out attack ads Thursday on senators up for 2014 reelection in 15 states (132 comments)

    Why would the NRA be targeting Senators who support them?  And in West Virginia, it's an open seat! Why not go after, say, Jeff Merkley or dick durbin, who actually want gun control?

    Is it because Merkley and Durbin are safe for re-election no matter what?

    Is it because these are considered the most in-play Democratic Senate seats, and the NRA just wants to defeat any Democrat wherever the opportunity arises, even the Democrats who are loyal to them?

    Might want to remind some red state Democrats that the reward of appeasing the NRA (and other conservative issue lobbies) is that they will accept your favorable votes and then spend as much as they can to try to defeat you.

    Cover me, Melvert! I gotta leave the Sovrin Independent Free Market Collective of Fortress Libertopia to go get our disability checks!
