In rural Minnesota, we value our outdoor heritage, hunting traditions and Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
One benchmark as to which candidate supports these constitutional rights is the NRA endorsement, and in the race for state representative, Jeff Backer was recently awarded NRA endorsement over incumbent Jay McNamar.
Backer was endorsed with an “A” grade based upon his strong answers to the NRA questionnaire, while McNamar received a grade of “C” for his two year record in the Minnesota House.
According to the NRA, a “C” grade is “Not necessarily a passing grade. A candidate with a mixed record on positions of gun related issues is one who may oppose some pro-gun positions or support some restrictive legislation.”
The grades are in and Jeff Backer is the clear choice for hunters and supporters of the Second Amendment.
