In 2010, the NRA took quite a bit of heat from conservatives for endorsing a number of Blue Dog Democrats as many faced difficult re-election bids. Some won, some didn’t. And of course, the GOP would still win the majority despite the endorsements but I remember hearing the comment that the NRA could single handily be responsible for these two words: Speaker Pelosi.
And the NRA paid no attention to how a member voted for Speaker; they said on many times they were a single-issue group only concerned about direct Second Amendment votes. That is how many Pelosi-backing Democrats got their endorsement. This included Travis Childers and Gene Taylor.
