Some Republicans see momentum in gun sanctuary movement. Will it work? (Virginia Mercury)

Stephen Farnsworth, a professor of political science at the University of Mary Washington, says it’s a reach to claim that gun control could reshape the 2020 elections in Virginia, with races for president, U.S. Senate and House of Representatives on the ballot. Farnsworth says that the two biggest factors that will influence the presidential race will be the shape of the economy and who the Democrats nominate… “It is important to remember that people tend to blame politicians who vote for a particular measure,” said Farnsworth. “(U.S. Rep. Abigail) Spanberger is not going to be voting on gun control measures at the state level. Individual lawmakers who vote for or against certain measures may be vulnerable in their own re-elections, two years from now.”
