The Grand Forks Herald ran a story yesterday morning illustrating the NRA does indeed support Democrats. In the race for North Dakota's sole Congressional seat, the NRA has rated State Rep. Pam Gulleson (D) an A and given her their endorsement based on her pro-gun record in the State House. She faces Republican Kevin Cramer who is rated AQ by the NRA-PVF. Cramer does have the endorsement of the Gun Owners of America which does tend to be more Republican oriented. The dueling endorsements is what grabbed the paper's attention.
FARGO – The North Dakota U.S. House race has attracted dueling endorsements from the pro-gun lobby.Gulleson on her website said she was proud to receive the NRA's endorsement and does list them at the head of her endorsements' list.
Pam Gulleson, the Democratic candidate, was recently endorsed by the National Rifle Association.
Meanwhile, Republican Kevin Cramer has picked up the backing of the Gun Owners of America, a more hard-line group on Second Amendment issues.
Gulleson accepted the endorsement, saying, “I am strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment and will protect and strengthen the rights of law-abiding Americans to own guns for both recreation and personal security. I’m proud to have received the endorsement from the National Rifle Association and look forward to working with the NRA as a member of Congress to protect gun-owners.”
