As Democrats wail and lament about the utter failure that was the Senate’s Gun Control legislation, they are simultaneously recruiting pro-gun democrat candidates to run in important races.
The question is whether two of the Democrats’ most promising potential candidates in Montana and South Dakota will pay a price for the leadership’s political maneuverings in Washington. Or will recruiting candidates who do not support President Obama’s gun control agenda have any effect on Democratic fundraising efforts?
Brad Dayspring who is the comm. director for the NRCC called out the democrats’ hypocrisy:
“Washington Democrats preach gun control, but are recruiting adamantly pro-gun candidates like Schweitzer & Herseth-Sandlin. Can’t be both,” he posted on Twitter.
Both Senator Reid and Senator Manchin have promised they will revisit gun control legislation in the Senate.
It’s not clear how more pro-second amendment democrat senators, in South Dakota and Montana, would help the gun-control effort.
