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.

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.
