NRA Politicking In Indy
Attendees to the NRA convention in Indy this week heard more than a handful of politicians speak today, including several potential Republican presidential candidates. Gov. Mike Pence and Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA) spoke as did Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA). Firebrand radio talk show host Mark Levin made an appearance and took home a special Indiana-made gun made just for him. Sen. Dan Coats was on hand to remind us that he's planning to seek another 6-year term to represent a state in which he's not resided in decades. And there was even a spot for Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri. There's an estimate 70,000 people expected in town for the NRA convention, although it looked like a much smaller crowd than that on hand at Lucas Oil Stadium to listen to the various speakers.
