Re: “Why did the NRA endorse Goodson?

Come on Max, the reason is obvious. Justice Goodson is facing an unprecedented attack from the media, the Chamber of Commerce, the JCN and Arkansas business interests. Despite her appeal, John realized she was in risk of losing the election. John Goodson hates to lose, and he has a trump card in his cozy relationship with Senator Tom Cotton. Cotton is a rising Tea Party and NRA star, and he or his office would be able to wrangle the endorsement for Goodson from the NRA. Goodson used his chit with Senator Goodson by asking him to do him a solid. As powerful as the Chamber and NW Arkansas money is, the NRA is exponentially more powerful. The NRA endorsement is all Courtney needs to win and the everything else between now and the election is just noise. Goodson knows it. Cotton knows it. And the NRA knows it. Put in a call or email to Cotton or his Chief of Staff and see how they avoid a direct answer on this issue. It is a win-win for everyone other than the citizens of Arkansas. The NRA now has a loyal Chief Judge on any gun related issue that might come before the court, including product liability. Justice Goodson will be elected. Cotton knows Goodson owes him a favor and Goodson will deliver huge bundled donations in the next election cycle. And John has shown that he can overcome any political obstacle.
