NRA Endorses McCain in Arizona Republican Primary

Thursday, 03 Jun 2010 02:25 PM

 

The National Rifle Association has endorsed John McCain in Arizona's Republican Senate primary.

The organization announced its endorsement in a letter to McCain dated Thursday.

The endorsement is a significant boost for McCain. It provides high-profile support for his conservative credentials as he tries to shake a primary challenge by former U.S. Rep. J.D. Hayworth.

Hayworth has attacked McCain's record on gun rights, saying the four-term Senator has supported restrictive legislation.

Hayworth touts an endorsement from Gun Owners of America, a smaller gun-rights lobbying group.
