Gotta love candidates with motives they keep secret...

Caught on Camera: Tedra Cobb Tells Supporters She Wants ‘Assault Rifle’ Ban But ‘Cannot Say That’ in Public

Around the 1:45 mark...


Quote:
Tedra Cobb, the Democratic candidate in New York's 21st Congressional District, told a group of teenage supporters that she supports a ban on certain firearms but won't say so publicly for fear of losing her election.

"When I was at this thing today, it was the first table I was at, a woman said, ‘How do you feel about assault rifles?' And I said they should be banned," Cobb can be heard saying in the video recorded by one of the attendees. "And I said, you know, people were getting up to go, to go get their lunch because it was a buffet, and I just said to her, I want you to know Cindy, I cannot say that."

When the woman pushed back on Cobb keeping quiet on how she feels about banning certain firearms, Cobb said coming out in favor of a gun ban would lead to her losing her bid against Republican incumbent Elise Stefanik.

"And she said, ‘Well, I want you to' and I said, ‘I won't win,'" Cobb said. "I said Moms Demand [Action] says, and Tricia Pleau said, ‘Do not say that you want an assault rifle ban because you will not win.'"

Progressives and Socialists (i.e. Democrats) will NEVER tell you their real agenda because they know it will lead to their losing at the ballet box.

95% agree...We do have people like Bernie Sanders and Orinoco Flow-Cortez...

Hopefully this information is broadcast to the voters in her district so that they know what she truly is about.
She knows her constituents don't like that (her) opinion, so it is best that they know her and what she is about.
