Last week the National Rifle Association officially announced they were not endorsing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D – NV).
They also went out of their way to make it clear they were not endorsing Reid’s opponent, Republican Sharon Angle — who filled out the National Association for Gun Rights Federal Candidate Survey 100% pro-gun. A typical Washington non-statement, statement.
The NRA’s “non-endorsement” statement brings up a number of important questions.
Does giving a candidate money not constitute a more-than-tacit endorsement? The NRA’s Federal PAC gave Harry Reid $4,950 this year, for his 2010 reelection campagin.
Does speaking glowingly of a candidate or politician during an election year not constitute an endorsement? In the June 2010 edition (page 16-18) of the NRA’s magazine, the American Rifleman, they featured an article highlighting the work Harry Reid has done with the NRA.
I firmly believe that actions speak louder than press releases.
In that spirit, our cartoonist outlined just what that the NRA’s “non-endorsement” really means.
