The Washington Post reports that the NRA has released a new ad letting Virginia gun owners know Democrat AG candidate Mark Herring is not their friend.
Both the Governor and Attorney General campaigns have turned to gun rights issues in the last week with the news that New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is dumping over $1 million in ads in Northern Virginia attacking GOP nominee Ken Cuccinelli for his support of the 2nd Amendment. Herring is trying to tie Obenshain to Cuccinelli by sayign both have extreme positions on the right to keep and bear arms:
“It’s no wonder that fringe groups like the NRA are doing everything they can to help tea party candidate Mark Obenshain, because he agrees with them and votes with them,” Herring campaign spokesman Matt Wojtkun said in an e-mail. “Virginians are rejecting this extreme Cuccinelli-Obenshain ticket because it’s wrong for Virginia.”
It’s important for gun owners to get involved in the final week of the campaign to help defeat the anti-rights team of Terry McAuliffe, State Senator Ralph Northam, and State Senator Mark Herring. All have committed to push for restrictions on our basic rights. You can help by contacting the NRA-ILA Field Reps below:
