Elephant Ears

This blog is dedicated to the political happenings in the Valley and Southwest Virginia. As the the name implies, this blog will have posts based on what is heard by this elephant's (GOPer's) ears. It is also a great treat to get while at the county fair or a carnival.

NRA Endorsement

Thanks to Too Conservative for pointing out the NRA has endorsed Creigh Deeds in this year's Attorney General race. Many of us had long expected this.
I don't think this will have a major effect since McDonnell also has a high rating. The reason for Deeds getting the endorsement is that McDonnell supported one-gun-a-month back in the day so he has an A- rating, while Deeds has an A (its funny since now Deeds says its a good idea and McDonnell now opposes it).
In fact, it could prove bad since Deeds needs NOVA to win this election, and this will probably hurt his chances there.
The is no question as to who the NRA will endorse in the Governor and Lt. Gov elections. Jerry Kilgore and Bill Bolling are guaranteed to get it.
