Berry endorsed by NRA

Posted By on Mon, Aug 7, 2006 at 10:58 AM

U.S. Rep. Marion Berry today announced that he received the endorsement of the National Rifle Association for his re-election campaign.

The news here is that the NRA rarely endorses Democrats. This is Berry's first NRA endorsement, and it comes as he is running for his sixth term in Congress.

(I think U.S. Rep. Mike Ross is the only other Arkansas Democrat to have the NRA's endorsement.)

Full press release after the jump.

Berry Receives NRA Endorsement

JONESBORO- Congressman Marion Berry, (D- Gillett), a farmer and the only licensed pharmacist in the U.S. Congress, announced his endorsement from the National Rifle Association today.

In the letter, Charles Cunningham, Director of Federal Affairs for the NRA says:

“On behalf of our four million members, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund endorses your candidacy for reelection to the U.S. House of Representatives in the First Congressional District of Arkansas.  During your tenure in Congress, you have supported the constitutional Rights of law abiding gun owners and sportsmen, demonstrating a strong commitment to our Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage.”

Congressman Berry stated, “I am pleased to have received the endorsement of the National Rifle Association. As a hunter and sportsman, I understand and appreciate the rights of gun owners and outdoorsmen, and I look forward to continue protecting these important rights in Congress.”

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
