Bruce Poliquin gets A grade but no NRA endorsement over Jared Golden

Second Amendment

AUGUSTA, Maine — The National Rifle Association gave former U.S. Rep. Bruce Poliquin a top grade but endorsed neither the Republican nor Democratic Rep. Jared Golden in their high-profile race in Maine’s 2nd District.

It will be the first time in four campaigns for the district dating back to 2014 that Poliquin will not be endorsed by the conservative gun-rights group, despite an A grade from the NRA in scores released Monday, while Golden got a B, the highest grade for any Democrat in Congress.

While Poliquin can claim the higher score, the NRA staying on the sidelines down the stretch in a gun-friendly district is another example of an endorsement judo marking Golden’s early campaign after bucking his party in high-profile votes on issues including guns.
