Republican Sen. Mike DeWine, in trouble with parts of his conservative base in Ohio. The senator earned a C grade in 2000 from NRA. But this year the NRA is giving him an F after he opposed a bill that prohibits lawsuits against gun manufactures for unlawful use of their firearms. "It was our No. 1 legislative priority last year, but DeWine was the lone Republican to vote against the [filibuster-breaking] cloture vote on the bill and the lone Republican to speak against the bill that had overwhelmingly bipartisan support and passed by a 2-to-1 margin," said NRA chief lobbyist Chris W. Cox."
