NRA Will Not Endorse Sharron Angle, Either

While the National Rifle Association will not be endorsing Harry Reid in his re-election race, it won't be endorsing Sharron Angle, either.


The NRA announced earlier today that it won't endorse Reid, after a history of backing the Senate majority leader. The group cited his votes in favor of Supreme Court nominees Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor.

The group did not mention Reid's opponent, the Tea-Party-backed Sharron Angle, in its announcement, saying only that it would not support Reid.

An NRA spokesperson confirms that the group will not endorse Angle, either.

"We will not be making an endorsement in the NV Sen race," NRA spokesman Andrew Arulnanandam wrote in an e-mail. The group declined to comment on its specific reasons for not endorsing Angle.
