    He did. Kind got an A and Kapanke got an AQ. The NRA has said that if it comes between two candidates that have the same rating, the incumbent gets the endorsement.

    It is simple he does not fit their agenda, wait until they get involved in the CCW bill.

    The NRA sucks. IMHO. This has played out countless times over the years and many times recently. Vote the bums out. Period.

    The NRA just keeps making me madder and madder (meaning angry, not crazy).

    And the NRA has demonstrated over and over that even if the challenger has a better rating, they will still endorse the incumbent.

    This is why the NRA (and all other political advocacy groups) should issue grades, not endorsements.

    Another surgeon at the physician-owned facility maintains in his sworn statement that an unnamed Kind aide in his Eau Claire office explained that the veteran politician "typically requires a contribution of $10,000 for a 1-2 hour personal meeting and $25,000 for a half day meeting."
    Hence the association with the NRA/NRA business model.
