Pro gun Democrat takes Hillary's place?

Check out the following article. The Libs are really in a frenzy over her pro-gun stance. Will she hold out or cave in to the pressure of her peers?

I was stunned to read about that. I'll wager that she gets derailed. There's no doubt a deal was cut with Hillary to get her endorsement -- I can't imagine for a minute that the people in that back room are going to sit still and let an NRA-friendly person get her seat. Part of the deal had to be that there would be no loss of liberal power in the Senate.

My question is will she cave to the pressure of her party. Especially in comitee meetings, parties and hallways etc etc where the real deals are brokered in D.C. This is why unfortunately I don't completely trust even pro gun dems. There's so much pressure on them from their own people.
