The rifleman: Chad Causey

Posted By on Fri, Sep 17, 2010 at 9:57 AM

Whatever else happens, Chad Causey won't lose the race for 1st District Congress on account of gun nuts. The NRA has given him its highest possible rating. (Republican Rick Crawford has a similar rating. But there is no endorsement.)

Remembering the famous Joe White/Gilbert Baker race, I asked the candidates if they have Arkansas hunting licenses. Causey does, a spokesman said. The Crawford camp didn't respond. But the state Game and Fish Commission said it could find no current hunting permit on file for Crawford. So if Crawford turns up in any photos with a brace of ducks — as so many Arkansas politicians like to do — call the game warden. It's worth noting that non-hunter Baker won the last time hunting bona fides became a public issue in Arkansas.

NEWS RELEASE

JONESBORO- Jonesboro-native and First District Congressional Candidate Chad Causey was awarded an AQ rating from the National Rifle Association today, showing Causey’s strong support of 2nd Amendment rights for the people of Arkansas.

“I've hunted my whole life here in Arkansas, duck hunting on the Black River or on a deer stand in Searcy County with my grandfather,” Causey said. “I will always stand up and fight to protect our 2nd Amendment rights.”

Causey received the AQ rating today from the NRA, the highest possible rating for a non-incumbent candidate for public office.

“As you know, the Second Amendment and our hunting heritage are very important to voters in Arkansas and your positions on these issues demonstrate a commitment to the rights of gun owners and sportsmen” said Charles Cunningham, Director of Federal Affairs for the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund.

A life-long hunter, Causey welcomed the rating from the NRA and looks forward to working with them on protecting 2nd Amendment rights.
