Democrats fired their standard-bearer, Gov. Bob Holden, on Tuesday and chose Auditor Claire McCaskill as their best hope for staving off Republican control of the Statehouse this fall.


The gun issue also hurt Holden in rural Missouri. Holden vetoed a concealed weapons bill, a move that he said prompted Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc. to endorse McCaskill. He said she had waffled on the issue, which she denied. McCaskill said she opposes concealed weapons. http://www.stltoday.com/

That makes no sence. If AB endorsed someone else BECAUSE goober 1 was anti, why would they endorse goober 2 if she WERE ANTI ALSO?

I always love to see leftist extremists lose their places at the public trough.

Well the obvious (unable to be understood by holden supporters) answer is that their contributions are not based on CCW. IIRC AB gives money to virtually anyone, unless you really piss them off like holden did.

Is there any association between Anheuser-Busch and CCW? If so, how come?

If there's one short and simple lesson pols need to get through their heads it's this: "Gun owners remember. Gun owners hold grudges."

Matt Blunt will beat her in november. He has already stated he will fix the problems with the new ccw law.

i just e-mailed AB to let them know my choice, too.

"I just thought I'd let you guys know that I'm going to switch from Miller to Bud from now on. I just learned from some internet research that you stand for citizen's rights in your home state. I applaud you for that. Thanks."

i'm probably floating OT here, but what the hey. Someone can start a new thread maybe if there's more discussion to be had on this.
