Hillary Clinton is no stranger to gun control. When she announced her run for the presidency two weeks ago I posted a little round-up of all the comments she has made on the record about her desire for things like mandatory registration, assault weapons bans, and that gun owners are potential terrorists. It seems that she is taking things a step further now, as her campaign has hired the Minnesota state director of the Michael Bloomberg funded gun control group “Everytown for Gun Safety” to manage her Minnesota campaign.
Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign has hired Scott Hogan as the Minnesota organizer in its 50-state “grassroots organizing campaign.”
According to his Linkedin profile, Hogan received a master’s degree in public policy from Indiana University in 2011 and has been working as Minnesota’s state director and campaign manager for Everytown for Gun Safety, which works to end gun violence.
Gun control is going to be a hot button issue this election cycle. With the widening divide between red and blue states over their approach to firearms laws, the only way Hillary could hope to win over some of those red or purple states to her side would be to ignore that issue completely. Hiring high profile people involved in anti-gun organizations to manage your election campaign in an entire state is probably not the best way to go about that.
