    For many months, there has been a perception that the NRA has endorsed Harry Reid for reelection to the U. S. Senate.

    Letters and alerts such as http://media.lasvegassun.com/media/pdfs/blogs/documents/2009/07/15/Reid_-_NRA_Letter.pdf and praise for Harry's support of the Clark County Shooting Park have led many to believe the NRA has endorsed Harry.

    NOT true. The NRA has NOT endorsed Harry Reid - at least NOT YET.

    Dear Mr. Rhodes,

    Thank you for contacting NRA-ILA.

    I can assure you, the NRA is aware of its member's feelings regarding Harry Reid. We will fully evaluate Reid's opponent before issuing any endorsement.

    During the confirmation of Sotomayor, the NRA indicated that grades would be negatively impacted if a vote to confirm was cast. This will most definitely be taken into consideration when grading Candidates this year.

    Should you have additional questions or concerns feel free to contact us again.

    Cordially,

    It will be quite some time before the NRA endorses anyone.

    It has been said that Harry Reid "hasn't been bad." Well, I say Harry has NOT been good. Singularly, his vote to confirm Sotomayor to the Supreme Court should negate any chance of NRA endorsement.

    We'll see ...

    I urge everyone to email/write the NRA-ILA, urging them to NOT endorse Harry Reid. We have plenty of pro-2nd amendment candidates - and Harry Reid is NOT one of them.

    Yep, I received one of those NRA letters asking me to call and thank Reid. I did scan and saved it (at least I thought I saved it) However it was the same as shown in this first post. I have called and sent several e-mails to good O Harry however the words thank you was never used.

    Harry Reid, based on the July 2009 NRA letter, is apparently the most powerful Democrat to repeatedly support the pro-gun position in the last 5 years.

    Hmm, I wonder what the reasons are for his behavior? I think there are three:

    N, RandA





    Still, I think that if NRA should ever endorse Reid, it would be a BIG BLACK MARK against it.
