Moms Demand Action Spins Midterm Losses: We're A 'Political Force'

Moms Demand Action Spins Midterm Losses: We're A 'Political Force'

One week after NRA-endorsed candidates won over 90 percent of 279 Congressional races and pro-gun Republicans took the Senate away from Democrats, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America founder Shannon Watts spun the gun control loses as proof that her group is a “political force.”

And her clear intimation was that her group is a “political force” to be reckoned with. 

Writing in the Huffinton Post, Watts arrived at this conclusion because three gun control governors won re-election during the midterm elections. Those three are John Hickenlooper (D-CO), Dannel Malloy (D-CT), and Andrew Cuomo (D-NY). 

Watts ignored the fact that NRA-endorsed gubernatorial candidates Doug Ducey (R-AZ), Greg Abbott (R-TX) and Larry Hogan (R-MD), won as their races. And on the incumbent side, NRA-endorsed Governors Rick Scott (R-FL),  Robert J. Bentley (R-AL), Scott Walker (R-WS), Rick Snyder (R-MI), Brian Sandoval (R-NV), John R. Kasich (R-OH), Mary Fallin (R-OK), Matt Mead (R-WY), Bruce Otter (R-ID), Sam Brownback (R-KS), and Paul R. LePage (R-ME), all won against gun control candidates too.  

Watts also tried to substantiate her “political force” claims by pointing to the fact Moms Demand Action has a chapter “in all 50 states.” 

She did not mention the September-October Mother Jones report showing that Moms Demand Action has less than 200,000 members. The NRA has over 5 million members.
