Another reason folks should vote for Matt Lohr.

    Comment...how about YEAH!!! Not so much b/c this will push undecided voters into the Lohr column, but because such a high profile organization issuing and endorsement means that the tide is turning back to Lohr and the big guns [no pun intended] are ready and willing to get behind Matt.

    Guns and God is as good as money in the 26th.

    With the NRA and Family Forum on Lohrs side it looks like he has both.

    BTW, Lohr also never said that he supported additional state and local firearm safety legislation (code for additional restrictions on your right to bear arms).

    Fulk did.

    Even if Lowell did well, it's still the NRA's perview to endorse whomever they want. If they Fulk was OK or even good, they could have not endorsed or even dual endorsed [if they do this, some organizations do, some don't.] Either way, especially if Fulk got an A- and they went for Lohr, it means the powers that be think Lohr is gonna bring this home in November. P.S. Did anyone miss Tim Kaine at the COC meeting?

    Usually if there is a candidate with an A- and an A, they will make an endorsement (i.e. the AG race this year).
    Franklin makes a good point as to why Fulk got an A-. The NRA usually makes an endorsement in a race if there are 2 different ratings, especially open seat races.
