Pols see opportunity in congressional shooting

In the event you thought politicians are able to view the world through anything but the lens of political strategy, we give you Brad Carver, chairman of a political party in a Georgia congressional district, near where a special election will be held this week to replace Tom Price.

“I’ll tell you what: I think the shooting is going to win this election for us,” he said, according to the Washington Post.

“It’s not going to be a blowout. It’ll be close, but we’ll win it. And I really do think the congressional baseball shooting is going to decide the election,” he said.

Which party? What does it matter?
