NRA attracts record 13 presidential hopefuls
(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) That bumper sticker, “I’m the NRA, and I vote,” could mean more than ever before in the upcoming presidential election, helping to explain why 13 potential GOP presidential candidates — the largest group ever — are traveling to Nashville Friday to address the 144th National Rifle Association Annual Meeting.
With five million dues-paying members, and up to 25 million others who align with the Second Amendment lobby and education organization, the NRA is providing a key platform for the candidates, 19 months before the 2016 election.
It is “a very valuable commodity,” said NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam.
