The Democrat who said 'F**k The NRA' Is Dropping Out Of NM Congressional Race - Matt Vespa: Pat Davis is dropping out. The New Mexico Democrat who made headlines with his “f**k the NRA” ad has decided to back his challenger instead. He’s doing it to help shore up party unity in the race that’s considered a toss up.Curiously, in a news release published yesterday, he claimed that his numbers were looking good and that he had received a lot of encouragement from his constituents.
His opponents (in New Mexico?) didn't necessarily disagree with his opinion:
Opponent Deb Haaland issued the following statement:Well they're Democrats, trying to toe the party line (and privately grinning at the curiosity of an avid anti-gunner shooting himself in the foot).
"The NRA and the arms industry are responsible for horrific preventable deaths all across America -- with communities of color hardest hit by this epidemic of violence. I fully understand the anger many people are expressing, and I share it -- even if I might use different words."
Damon Martinez's campaign declined to comment. KRQE News 13 did not hear back from Antoinette Lopez.
Let's start a new totally unfounded rumor, shall we?
