I found via Sebastian that Shannon Watts is not running for that congressional seat in Colorado where she got her new very expensive home.
“Ultimately, I decided my work with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America and Rise to Run is more important than ever, given the election of Donald Trump, and right now I’m going to stay focused on helping to shape the laws and elections that impact women,” she said.
Sebastian makes the point that she is not backed because she is associated with Gun Control which is a very low preoccupation now, and it is a fair analysis. To me it is also the carpetbagger effect and I am willing to bet the local Dems made it clear she is not welcome yet as she is just a recent arrival and only has notoriety because of her patron Michael Bloomberg.
This is also telling. the Dems have pretty much rejected Bloomberg’s millions for their coffers. The particular seat that Shannon was lusting after is firmly Democratic to the point there is not even a Republican registered for the primaries. I am sure that they could have used the cash for other races, but they seem to have slapped his face and told him to go away. Then again, Bloomberg’s investments have not quite given the results they have wanted.
Now, I do believe we will see more dissension within Moms Demand. If they were getting pissed at the honchos when Shannon was thinking to become a Congresswoman, having her around mad as a wet hen and taking it out on everybody is not gonna help the internal Kumbaya of the organization.
I wonder if she really likes snow.
