The NRA and its campaign cash are what stands between us and gun reform. Every time I think about those kids, it gets me mad. Chris Van Hollen met with NRA lobbyists to craft a loophole that would let the NRA skirt a new campaign finance law and block gun control. But Democrat Donna Edwards said no to the NRA loophole and stood up to the gun lobby. And she would ban assault weapons. Democrat Donna Edwards, Maryland's next senator.

Note

After the White House asked the super PAC Working for Us to take down this ad, the super PAC instead took out mention of President Barack Obama in this controversial ad, which attacks Rep. Chris Van Hollen for meeting with NRA lobbyists and crafting a loophole in a campaign finance law. See the altered version here; that version began airing on April 15. (Note: airing counts on this page include both the old and new versions of the ad.) One of the major donors to Working for Us is hedge fund manager S. Donald Sussman, according to this report from the Baltimore Sun.
