The National Rifle Association is firing away – mostly in favor of Republicans. It’s shooting off a multimillion-dollar ad campaign via TV, the radio and snail mail, Politico reports
The first round of the onslaught will cost $6.75 million. The NRA is aiming to elect pro-gun candidates in House, Senate and governor’s races.
Republicans have fired away at the group for supporting some Democrats this year, including Senate candidate Joe Manchin in West Virginia and gubernatorial candidate Ted Strickland in Ohio, but most of the artillery support is going to Republicans.
GOP candidates benefiting from the NRA’s offensive include gubernatorial candidate Rick Perry in Texas, gubernatorial candidate Rick Scott (pictured)
in Florida, Ohio Senate candidate Rob Portman and Washington Senate candidate Dino Rossi.
