NRA endorses Nevada Republicans Laxalt, Roberson, Duncan
The National Rifle Association has endorsed Adam Laxalt for Nevada governor and other Republicans seeking statewide seats.
The NRA's political action committee announced Friday that Laxalt has earned an "A+" rating from the organization, the highest grade it bestows on elected officials to rank their pro-gun voting records, statements and positions.
The Republican attorney general spoke at the organization's annual meeting last year and was invited to attend this year but skipped the event amid a renewed push by gun-control advocates following a February school shooting.
The NRA also gave "A+" ratings to Republican candidate for lieutenant governor Michael Roberson and GOP attorney general candidate Wes Duncan.
Democrats Chris Giunchigliani and Steve Sisolak, two Clark County Commission members running in a tight primary for governor, both received "F" grades from the NRA.
