I don't know. Most of the R candidates seemed to be pretty much crap. It's hard to believe that Romney was the best that they could come up with but that's the guy they put up there. Was there a better R candidate this last time that might have been torpedoed by the NRA?

And your referenced grades, because they come from the NRA, is almost like a tautology: "They give to everyone who they like (and thus, grade high)!" Well, that's really objective, huh?
I think they grade on support of legislation, and the strictness of the regulation supported. That's been my experience anyway.
