A Min­nesotan from each party earned NRA en­dorse­ments Wed­nes­day, as Rep. Col­lin Peterson (D) and busi­ness­man Stew­art Mills (R) garnered the group’s sup­port. Peterson is a rare Demo­crat to gain the NRA’s back­ing. 

“Throughout his ca­reer, Col­lin Peterson has con­sist­ently op­posed all at­tempts to ban law­fully owned fire­arms and magazines and has stood strong against the Obama-Bloomberg agenda,” said the NRA’s Chris Cox.

The Mills cam­paign re­leased a state­ment hail­ing the en­dorse­ment. “Over five mil­lion act­ive NRA mem­bers, many of them in our part of Min­nesota, know that the Second Amend­ment is about so much more than just hunt­ing — and they know we need a rep­res­ent­at­ive who will stand up for those rights,” it said.
