Hill reports that Rep. Carolyn Maloney is looking at challenging Gillibrand. This is the second Carolyn because Rep. Carolyn McCarthy is also looking at a primary.
Also Gillibrand is learning that guns aren't just used to kill animals as she will visit a school that lost a student to gun violence reports the Daily News.
More below on both stories - which really go together.
Rep. Maloney weighing primary challenge to Gillibrand
Rep. Carolyn McCarthy isn’t the only New York Democrat named Carolyn to consider a primary challenge to newly crowned Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand.
NBC New York is reporting that Rep. Carolyn Maloney is also weighing a campaign, and Maloney isn’t disputing it.
"Gun fan Kirsten Gillibrand to visit Brooklyn High School of teen who was shot dead"
Pro-gun Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on Wednesday accepted an invitation - extended via the Daily News - to visit the Brooklyn high school that lost a student to gun violence.
The invitation to Gillibrand came from Nazareth Regional High School after 17-year-old honors student Nyasia Pryear-Yard was killed by a stray bullet.
I would definitely support either McCarthy or Maloney or if they both run McCarthy becasue she is my congresswoman.
I do not want a Gordon Smith style Democratic Senator from New York. Even if she became the darling of the Brady Campaign after being the darling of the NRA that would show she is a flip flopper who really has no core values. I wont vote for a NRA fan and I wouldn't vote for flip flopper who takes positions just to get votes. Both are extremely distasteful and I would prefer someone with convictions.
