Specter's Smoking Gun
The primary in Pennsylvania is today (April 27th). Specter, a Republican incumbent (and often called a "RINO", for "Republican In Name Only"), is being challenged for the nomination by a pro-gun Republican. The NRA is backing Specter, because the NRA likes to play the middle and they are hesitant to step away from an incumbent, especially if it risks losing his support should he win without the endorsement. The GOA, on the other hand, have a different view; they like the challenger, Pat Toomey, a current US Representative.
Who's right? I don't know. But I trust the GOA more. And Toomey has the advantage of being an incumbent for his own seat in the House; it's not as much of an upset for him to win as it would be normally. This is one of those primaries that are sometimes more important than the actual election, especially when the district is relatively uncontested.
