The NRA Endorsement Game

For conservatives, take solace in the fact that NRA endorsements haven’t exactly translated into victories for incumbent Democrats in challenging races over the years. Obviously, Childers and Taylor come to mind most recently, but we can also go back several years. In 2002, the year before they would endorse Ronnie Musgrove in his re-election bid, they backed the following Southern Democratic governors: Jim Hodges (South Carolina), Roy Barnes (Georgia) and Don Siegelman (Alabama). They would all lose.
