The National Rifle Association is out with their endorsements in contested Georgia state legislative races this afternoon. Click here for the entire list.
The big surprise: In the District 21 race for state Senate, the NRA has given a higher grade to GOP challenger Brandon Beach of Alpharetta than to Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers of Woodstock.
Rogers was awarded a “B.” Beach was given an “AQ” – that is, an A based on his answers to a questionnaire rather than his votes on legislation.
You’ll recall that last March, the NRA accused Rogers and Senate President pro tem Tommie Williams of working behind the scenes to kill an effort by the gun rights organization to pass legislation that would allow employees to keep firearms in locked vehicles parked on company lots.
