Senate Majority Leader Harry Reids aides met recently with staffers of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to warn them: Targeting vulnerable Democrats like Arkansass Mark Pryor on gun control could backfire on the party, several sources told POLITICO.
It didnt work.

While countering the NRA which is only a small fraction of gun owners.
Isn’t Bloomberg a Republican? Maybe he’s a switch hitter...
Isn’t Linseed Grahamnesty a Republican? Wasn’t Arlen Spector? Dick Nixon? Jerry Ford?
Don’t forget my personal favorite, Chuckie Crist.
He is whatever it takes to get elected.
