On The Issues.
Here in WV we are in a world of hurt. Here is where our members stand...
Governor Tomblin... Life member of NRA. According to OTI he has no stance. It's hard to tell where he will stand and how he will vote.
Senator John D. Rockefeller IV... Longest serving member of our state, NRA gave him a grade of F. Here is a republican who switched to to the democratic party just so he could get elected. He continues to get elected year after year given his enormous wealth and family.
Senator Joe Manchin... Life member of NRA who gave him a grade of A. Since the CT shooting, he has gone on national TV to say there needs to be open dialogue regarding firearm limitations. It's hard to say how he will vote.
Congressman Nick Joe Rahall... Strong supporter of second amendment, NRA gave him a grade of A, indicating a pro-gun rights voting record.
Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito... A strong supporter of second amendment, NRA gave her a grade of A, indicating a pro-gun rights voting record.
Just remember, this has only just begun. Everybody is walking on egg shells and being very careful of the words they speak. Whatever happens will take months before anything is decided. We as citizens need to be mindful how our members vote, and when election time comes around, we need to make sure we vote for the right person who will be our voice in Washington.
Let the games begin!!
