Renacci, Mandel Accepted Thousands from NRA in 2012 Campaign Contributions

Open Secrets published a list of recipients of National Rifle Association campaign contributions that also includes Steven LaTourette, John Boehner.

Ohio Republicans Josh Mandel and Jim Renacci accepted thousands in 2012 campaign contributions from the National Rifle Association, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. 

The NRA doled out more than $750,000 in campaign contributions in 2012, according to the Center, a research organization that tracks money in politics and how it affects elections and policies and shares the information on OpenSecrets.org. The center got its data from the Federal Election Commission. 

In the top five for 2012 were Ohio Treasurer Mandel, who accepted $9,450, and U.S. Rep. Renacci, who accepted $9,900, according to the report. Mandel made an unsuccessful bid to challenge incumbent Sherrod Brown for U.S. Senate this year. 

Fifteen Ohio lawmakers accepted $1,000 or more from the NRA, according to the report. That list included House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, ($2,500) and former U.S. Rep. Steve LaTourette, R-Ohio, ($3,000).

Agree.NRA upholds the 2nd Amendment. Clinton, Gore had money funneled from China. Go into Dems records & cite their contributions, legal & otherwise.

She's just pointing out the one-sidedness of the "report".

Find it interesting that this publication too,is on the bandwagon to paint the NRA as something terrible to receive a contribution from----hmmm. "RFR" call to demean, call names, deride and/or belittle. Following in the footsteps of MSM, entertainment & academia.
