NRA endorsing Attorney General Chris Koster

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is touting an endorsement from the National Rifle Association.

Koster announced the NRA support today. The Democratic attorney general says his job involves defending the rights of all Missourians, including the right to bear arms.

The NRA has rated Koster "solidly pro-gun," which it says reflects a demonstrated record of support for Second Amendment issues. Koster’s Republican challenger Ed Martin does not have a voting record, but the NRA also rated him "pro-gun" based on his answers to a survey.

Martin recently released a campaign commercial which introduces his family and promises to protect constitutional rights He also says he will fight the federal health care overhaul.
