The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund announced Saturday it has endorsed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) for re-election in the May 20 Kentucky primary.
"Mitch McConnell is a true champion of our Second Amendment rights, leading the fight against President Obama, Harry Reid and Michael Bloomberg's anti-freedom agenda," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund.....

The NRA is part of the business as usual political machine in Washington, what more can I say.
They say McConnell is fighting Harry Reid but hasn't the NRA endorsed or given Reid high ratings in the past????
I am sending a contribution to Matt Bevin, that's one thing for sure.
GOA all the way. No compromise!
Too bad for the liberal declared-pro-RINO4Obama NRA.
There is more than the 2nd Amendment.
To be fair to the NRA, they try to stick exclusively to gun issues and favor incumbents otherwise.
Bevin would be better but that’s on issues different than the narrow NRA view.
This story is days old. Really, the NRA didn’t have much choice since Bevin self-destructed over cockfighting. Money sent to Bevin is now the equivalent of tossing it onto a bonfire.
I belong to the NRA, but I give my money to GOA.
Always thought about joining GOA. Today I did it.
You’re dead to me NRA. I should have left when I found out Grover al-Norquist was a board member.
They are also endorsing the DemocRat/Rino Thad “enough” Cochran in Miss.
This makes perfect sense if you’re a rabid one-issue voter.
- The NRA
Now, where's all the NRA types with their free hats, stickers, duffel bags and their "but, but, but" arguments that ignore the NRA assisted in writing the 'gun free school zone' nonsense, the "assault weapon" bans of the 90s, or that it was the NRA that wrote the first federal gun control legislation, and were responsible for the automatic weapons laws?
"But they're different now." Really?
And yes, the NRA has given Reid A+ ratings in the past.
With a 40 point lead, this endorsement isn’t going to be a factor, McConnell will defeat Bevin handily regardless.
The NRA supports inside the beltway business as usual politicians just like the folks at the “National Right To Life Committee” do.
95 PERCENT OF ELECTED REPUBLICANS EITHER FAKE CONSERVATISM OR REPUDIATE IT AND MANY OF THE PHONIES RUN WITH NRA ENDORSMENT LIKE SOME SENATOR FROM MY STATE NAMED TOOMEY WHO WENT ON TO INTRODUCE AND VOTE FOR ANTI-SECOND AMENDMENT LEGISLATION BACKED BY SCHUMER AND BLOOMBERG.
Another not-ready-for-prime-time candidate. Please, please, please get educated FReepers:
Much of it can be had online, but go to a session, connect and get your game ready.
They need to stick to just 2nd Amendment without the incumbent bias. If both candidates are equal,stay out of it. Pro life groups do the same thing.
I attended one of their seminars, and get regular emails from them. They’re a good outfit.
Attending a pro-cockfighting rally has to be the stupidest stunt I’ve seen pulled by any candidate in my past half-century of watching politics.
OMG, cockfighting....hang him! Cause like that is worse than a big govt Republican declaring war on Conservatives. So let’s re-elect Mcconnell the man who votes for massive spending.
The two big parties act as one in Washington with Obama, Reid, Pelosi, Boehner, Ryan and McConnell all signing off on new taxes, more spending beyond means and a higher national debt.
The business as usual guys like Mitch McConnell must go.
