Congressional Clay Shooters: Who Are the Big Shots?
Bragging rights were won at the Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus Shoot-Out. The Shoot-Out is organized each spring by the Congressional Sportsmen's Foundation and pits Democrats against Republicans on the trap, skeet and sporting clays. It’s a fun way to determine who are straightest shooters on Capitol Hill. Last year the Democrats won the shoot, but this year, the Republicans, lead by Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI), emerged victorious along with Reps Robin Hayes (R-NC) and dual and John Kline (R-MN). Who are the top guns for the Democrats? Reps Bennie Thompson (D-MS), Mike Thompson (D-CA), Don Young (R-AK), and Mike Ross (D-AR) were top shooters for the Democrats. I don't suspect that this will be the last shots fired this year, especially now that we know who is the nominee for each party.
