Reid panders to the gun owners in his own state because he understands what it takes to get elected there.

Don't think for a minute that he wouldn't side with 'the annointed one' to pass legislation if requested.

Lots of Dems have 'sold their souls' with recent votes, knowing they likely won't get re-elected, but hoping there'll be 'something else' for them down the road. Keep in mind, they believe the doors to the socialist utopia have been kicked open.

Another example of the NRA putting money before mission. The Sotomayor and Kagen things are just excuses.

NRA is a single issue organization. They got a load of crap from their conservative members (who are probably a majority) and didn't want to alienate them (and their money). But that's okay, because when Reid loses his seat Chuck Schumer will be Senate President and the NRA can start spamming us with fear about all the crap he's going to do to us. So either way, it works out for the NRA.

From a strictly single-issue perspective, Reid was the right guy to be Senate President with the Democrats in control. He has the power to control what gets voted on.

Personally I'd rather have Harry Reid inside the tent pissing out than Chuck Schumer outside the tent pissing in.

I think that if Reid loses, there is a better than even chance that Mitch McConnell will be Majority Leader and Upchuck Shumer will be Minority Leader. Even if the Democrats do hold the Senate, it's going to be by a small margin and Shumer is going to have to control is inherent obnoxious nature and deal with the Republicans.

Which still won't stop the NRA from using him very effectively as a bogey man. :)

From a Western blog:

Dear Patriot,

Harry Reid will NOT be receiving the endorsement of the National Rifle Association! Reid thought that he had bought the NRA endorsement by securing an earmark for a Las Vegas shooting range.

After we conservatives put an intense amount of pressure on the NRA they have reversed course and announced that they will not be endorsing Reid! This is huge as Reid planned to use the NRA endorsement to prove his "moderate" credentials.

This is a huge victory for constitutional conservatives and a crushing blow to Harry Reid. Polls show that Reid has lost his lead and now the Western Representation PAC has yet another way to expose Reid with our radio and television ads!

The Western Representation PAC is currently running ads defending Tea Party leader Sharron Angle against the smears of the Reid's political machine . We have announced that we will launch a major television ad campaign before early voting starts October 16th, help us retire Harry Reid by making a contribution ----HERE----

Since taking the national stage in the last six months the Western Representation PAC has helped win huge victories in Nevada with Sharron Angle, and the almost certain victory in Alaska with Joe Miller by running critical radio ads in the final days before the respective elections.
