One more Repubican front-group weighs in. NRA to Montana: Obama a threat to gun owners,
The National Rifle Association said Wednesday that Barack Obama’s campaign is trying to mislead voters about his past support of gun control, calling the Democratic candidate “a poster child of the extremist, elitist gun control movement.”
. . . The NRA plans to spend $40 million nationally this campaign season, and has yet to determine how much will be spent in individual states.
Update I wasn’t clear enough. I believe the NRA is the kind of “issue” organization that is not allowed under the tax and election codes to support or work against individual candidates. Like Vets for freedom, Freedom’s Watch and the other Republican Party front groups that are out there working against Obama.
