Scoring a valuable endorsement, DFL Attorney General Lori Swanson has won support from the National Rifle Association.
In a statement, Chris Cox, the NRA's chief lobbyist and head of its political action fund, said, "We ask all Minnesota gun owners, hunters and NRA members to vote Lori Swanson for Attorney General on November 2."
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
