Political Rewind: Cagle Wins Endorsement Of The NRA

Jul 9, 2018

The National Rifle Association endorsed Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, days before the July 24 GOP runoff against Secretary of State Brian Kemp.  This comes as Kemp tried to paint Cagle as weak on gun issues.

 

The NRA’s president-elect, Oliver North, is set to headline three rallies on Saturday for Cagle’s campaign for governor. Cagle and Kemp, who have an endorsement from the GeorgiaCarry.org state gun rights organization, have increasingly competed over who is the most vocal supporter of the Second Amendment. This as the two rally for support from conservatives who will decide the GOP nominee.
