A while back, I blogged a piece about how GOP Senate Candidate Eric Knowles who’s running in District 30, had “blinked” when it came to filling out an NRA questionnaire – meaning he didn’t fill it out on time to get an NRA grade other than a “?”. Found here:
In the same piece, I also commented that his rival for the GOP nomination, Don Quinn, had filled out the questionnaire in a timely manner, and answered well enough to garner himself an “A-” Rating.
Two things at play here, now – and as a matter of fairness, I wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t post this:
Eric Knowles had not fallen asleep when it came to the NRA questionnaire for the simple fact that he never received the questionnaire – not until much later. Not until after I wrote the above referenced blog piece. In fact, not only did Mr. Knowles not receive the questionnaire, one Hell of a of other MDGOP candidates never got the damned thing either – at least not according to all the messages left on my FB page at the time.
Damned lazy assed NRA!
Well, Eric Knowles DID finally receive the questionnaire and he responded to it accordingly. And, from Mr. Knowles responses to the NRA questions, he has bested Don Quinn by garnering an “AQ” rating.
Let me repeat that: Eric Knowles has received an “AQ” rating from the NRA.
(Well, that’s great, Wayne – but who the Hell are you voting for?)
Whatever, this race has been a barn burner from the outset, all the way down to some of the endorsers of both Mr. Knowles (Annapolis Mayor Mike Pantelides and 6th District Congressional Candidate Dan Bongino) and for Mr. Quinn, (former RNC Chairman and MD LG Michael Steele and former MD Governor, Bobby Ehrlich). Tuesday night, this race will be one to watch to see which of these guys gets to go up against incumbent Too-tied-to-the-DEM-Leadership, Senator John Astle.
Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em. And something tells me these two guys might just got ‘em.
