Downrange: December 2010
ELECTION WRAP UP
According to results tabulated by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the 2010 elections proved to be exceptionally strong for pro-firearms candidates at both the federal and state levels. Big picture: In the election, Republicans took back control of the House of Representatives while picking up six seats in the Senate and plus-six net-change governorships. Though the Democrats maintain control of the Senate, pro-industry/gun Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D) won re-electiona move that keeps either anti-gun senators Chuck Schumer (D) or Dick Durbin (D) from assuming the leadership position.
