Senator Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) suffered a stroke this week and is expected to make a full recovery, but the news of his condition sent a wave of panic through the Democratic party. This was a reminder that they are just one vote away from losing their majority.

Hey folks, I’m Attorney Andrew Branca, for Law of Self Defense. Today I’d like to share with you a tragic story out of New Mexico involving the actor Alec Baldwin (perhaps best known for his small but powerful role in the 1992 movie “Glengarry  Glenn Ross”—“coffee is for closers!”—and his long-standing role as boss Jack Donaghy on the television program “30 Rock.”)

The Tragic Event

I’ll briefly quote from a New York Times story on the event:
Alec Baldwin discharged a prop firearm on the set of a Western he was making in New Mexico on Thursday, killing the film’s director of photography and wounding the movie’s director, the authorities said. The cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins, 42, was killed, and the director, Joel Souza, 48, was injured … . The circumstances of the shooting are under investigation.
It’s separately reported that Alec Baldwin was also a co-producer of the movie.

Democrat Melanie Stansbury won the special election for New Mexico's 1st Congressional District. However, Republican Mark Moores made a play for the seat in this deep-blue district by attacking Democrats on rising crime. Democrats may have won, but this race made them nervous. The GOP should go after seats like this across the country. You can't win if you don't play.
