McCarthy on redistricting

Carolyn McCarthy’s latest e-mail indicates she’s worried about being redistricted out during next year’s elections:

“Redistricting could mean I will face an incredibly tough reelection race. Because New York is losing two Congressional seats, I could be pitted head-to-head against another strong incumbent. We don’t know what will happen. But when it does, we need to be ready to hit the ground running. It’s the only way I can continue to be a strong voice on the issues we care about …”

Excellent.  She’s never had a creditable opponent before.  Let her try and justify her record against another professional politician who will have no problem attacking her for being little more than a single issue incumbent.

“… While other lawmakers are running scared and staying silent on issues like the ridiculous “National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act,” I’ve already contacted every governor in the country, urging them to oppose the NRA’s brazen attempt to override important state guns laws …”

Yep, and all 50 of them have blown her off.  So much for her strong voice.
