NRA Endorses Otter For Governor

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) has endorsed Idaho Governor C.L. "Butch" Otter in the GOPrimary race for governor Tuesday. In a news release, the NRA said: "Otter has earned an 'A' rating from the NRA-PVF for his leadership on Second Amendment issues in Idaho.  An 'A' is reserved for lawmakers who have supported NRA positions on key votes in elective office." The NRA touted Otter's support and signature for legislation "that improved self-defense laws in the Gem State by enhancing the right of law-abiding Idahoans to defend themselves in more places and during state emergencies. Governor Otter also supported and signed a bill that removed unwarranted federal regulations from firearms and ammunition manufactured and kept in Idaho. He has also signed into law provisions to provide extra time for Idaho men and women serving in the military overseas to renew their concealed weapons permits."

DFO: I notice that the NRA didn't mention the guns-on-campus legislation that Otter also signed.

Question: How key is this endorsement?
