The announcement for a special event hosted by NRA came a few days ago, so I figured that could only mean one thing. From Chris Cox:
I’m proud to announce today that your NRA Political Victory Fund is endorsingÂ Mitt RomneyÂ andÂ Paul RyanÂ for President and Vice President of the United States.
Romney’s statement on assault weapons from years ago while he was Governor of Massachusetts will continue to dog him with the gun vote, but with what’s on the line with the Courts, I expected NRA would endorse him anyway. In fact, in Chris Cox’s letter, the first reason listed is “Mitt Romney will appoint pro-Second Amendment judges to the Supreme Court.” With the endorsement, hopefully NRA will have some input into the selection process when it comes time to replace justices.
