Giffords’ endorsements

Coming on the heels of Everytown’s endorsments, Giffords’ has made some endorsements of their own for the fall elections:

Some thoughts on these:

  • Unlike like Bloomberg’s these appear to have been done in-house.  That does not mean they have a legitimate grassroots, just that they have at least one person on staff with some political knowledge.
  • The incumbent endorsements are just for prestige, like what NRA does.  Since incumbents usually win this gives them the ability to say later on that 85% (or whatever) of Giffords-endorsed candidates won.
  • It is unclear what, if anything, comes with the endorsements.  Money, mailings, etc.
