Tonawanda News — Normally when Chuck Schumer does anything helpful in Washington — and plenty of times when he hasn’t done much of anything — he calls a press conference.
This time, Toomey asked him to bow out. The conservative Republican said he couldn’t be seen standing next to Schumer, who more or less embodies opposition to gun ownership.
Lo and behold, when the deal was announced it was only Manchin and Toomey before the cameras. Chuck was nowhere to be found.
You know things are changing when Chuck Schumer ducks a press conference.
