Pomeroy picks up endorsement from NRA

Earl Pomeroy

FARGO – The National Rifle Association’s political action committee has endorsed Democratic incumbent Earl Pomeroy in North Dakota’s U.S. House race.

Both Pomeroy and Republican challenger Rick Berg received “A” grades in the NRA-PAC‘s election assessment. (The grade indicates the candidates are “solidly pro-gun,” supported NRA positions on key votes and/or have a demonstrated record of support for Second Amendment issues.)

The PAC said they endorsed Pomeroy, though, because of a variety of positions he’s held supporting gun-related legislation and court cases.

Pomeroy also recently received the endorsement of the Veterans of Foreign Wars political action committee, because of his “strong support for veterans, national security and defense, and military personnel issues,” PAC director Salvatore J. Capirchio said.
