Republican U.S. Senate candidate Charlie Summers has announced he'll get the backing of the National Rifle Association at a Thursday event in Holden.
In a Tuesday email, Summers spokesman Drew Brandewie said NRA President David Keene will be on hand at a 12 p.m. "campaign rally" at Maine Military Supply in Holden "with key second amendment rights advocates, sportsmen, and NRA members from across Maine."
"As I’ve traveled the state I’ve gotten support from sportsmen and gun owners from Kittery to Fort Kent, and I’m thankful for the backing of the NRA (which) represents so many hardworking Mainers," Summers said in a statement.
Summers was also endorsed by the NRA in his ultimately unsuccessful 2008 race to represent Maine's 1st Congressional District.Tweet
