Schaeffer versus Coors?

In the primary contest for the Republican nomination for US Senate, to replace Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell: as far as RKBA goes, Schaeffer looks better and is better known, Coors seems too much Owens's buddy for me to trust him on this.

But Schaeffer is beginning to really piss me off with attacks on Coors about reducing the drinking age. This line of attack reeks of Nanny-Statism, and it's out of character for a conservative, neo- or otherwise. I see the same freedom-dynamic behind both RKBA and right to booze. If Schaeffer's support for RKBA is not moored to a deeper philosophy of freedom, one that also sees a right to be stupid with liquor for example, that support can be knocked loose and he'd be no better at protecting RKBA than Bob Dole under pressure or if faced with a hard choice.

Why no discussion of the contenders for the Democrat Party's nomination? Well, what about them?

BTW, I'm aware of no Libertarian candidate at all. My copy of the LPCO newsletter did not mention one. If that spot's still open, well . . .
