There is conflicting information about what the NRA is going to do in this Presidential election. NRA Chief Wayne LaPierre will hold a press conference today and some speculate he’ll make an endorsement. Our own Jason Pye (who works for Barr) wrote this on the former Georgia Congressman’s website:
Given the fact that Wayne LaPierre and Chris Cox have exposed John McCain as an anti-gun sympathizer, we here at Bob Barr 2008 fully expect that the NRA will announce their support for Bob Barr tomorrow and run ads against both Sen. John McCain and Sen. Barack Obama.
However, another Georgian (currently exiled in DC) Robert Stacey McCain reports anger in the Barr camp at a possible NRA endorsement of McCain:
Sources with the campaign of Libertarian Party presidential candidate Bob Barr are livid at reports that National Rifle Association Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre will endorse Republican John McCain today.
UPDATE: The NRA endorsed McCain.
