The National Association for Gun Rights PAC has endorsed Paul Nehlen in Tuesday's Republican primary in the 1st Congressional District, Nehlen's campaign announced.
The association has criticized incumbent Rep. Paul Ryan over legislation that would have required a three-day waiting period for people on the terror watch list to get a gun.
“The Second Amendment is the cornerstone of American freedom, and it must be protected from the assaults of career politicians looking for an emotional tabloid headline,” Nehlen said in the news release.
Nehlen hopes to upset incumbent Rep. Paul Ryan on Tuesday. The National Rifle Association has endorsed Ryan.
