On Tuesday, Republican Mike Braun won the Indiana GOP primary in what the Indy Star called “a huge upset” over U.S. Reps. Luke Messer and Todd Rokita. That prompted foul-mouthed teen demagogue David Hogg to challenge him to take no NRA money.

The “No NRA Money” effort describes itself on Twitter as a “national campaign demanding that political candidates reject funding from the NRA.”
There’s only one problem. Braun is a huge supporter of the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms and has received an “A” rating from the NRA. Additionally, he’s a member of the organization.
“The Second Amendment is a God-given right that shall not be infringed,” Braun wrote on Facebook back in April.
Hogg’s “challenge” triggered many of his acolytes.
He doesn’t. He’s a Republican. They can’t say no to money.

According to the Indy Star, Braun “fueled his bid with millions of dollars of his own money…”

Really David? lol….. you really have nor shame morals or scruples. Plus your hypocrisy knows no bounds. Perhaps you should take the "No Soros Money Pledge"

That’s a pledge we’d like to see as well…

Only if you start taking the pledge against #noplannedparenthood and politicians that have taken over $7M in campaign funds from an organization that has helped kill millions of babies.

Hogg, by the way, doesn’t exactly have a stellar track record in these matters. His efforts to hurt the NRA financially have backfired, as did his boycott of Laura Ingraham.
It could be this demand could help Braun in the long run as many are getting fed-up with Hogg’s never-ending antics.
Braun, the Indy Star added, “will now face off against Sen. Joe Donnelly, who is widely considered one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the November election. The race will be one of a handful that determine which party controls the Senate next year.”
