Kelton: I’m not supporting “NRA bought” candidates

Colorado voters should be aware that Senator Cory Gardner received the 5th largest campaign contribution from the NRA, an unbelievable $3.88 million dollars.

It will be interesting to see if he votes for stricter gun-control measures (universal background checks, a ban on assault weapons, an updated computer system that will alert officials to increased sales of guns and ammunition to an individual) supported by his constituents or uses the same old, tired excuses of “mental health is the issue” to vote against these measures.

Senator Marco Rubio says the NRA contributes to his campaign because it buys into his agenda. I think “buy” is the operative word here.

I’m not voting for any political candidate who takes a campaign contribution from the NRA next election.
