There are some pretty serious allegations in the following news release from the Herseth Sandlin campaign. Check it out:
KRISTI NOEM PRETENDS TO RECEIVE NRA ENDORSEMENT
As Hunting Season Begins, Noem Tries to Dupe South Dakota Voters
October 13, 2010 – Kristi Noem is sending dishonest and outrageously false mailings to South Dakota voters, pretending that she received the NRA endorsement and trying to dupe South Dakotans into thinking Noem received a better rating from the NRA than Stephanie Herseth Sandlin.
The mailer features the NRA logo next to Noemâ€™s name, and a badge that says â€œNational Rifle Association F ratingâ€ next to Herseth Sandlinâ€™s name.
In reality, Herseth Sandlin received an A rating and the endorsement from the NRA.Â Herseth Sandlin has received an A rating and the NRA endorsement in every year that she has run for re-election.
Betsy Hart, deputy campaign manager for Stephanie for South Dakota said, â€œNoem is willfully misleading South Dakota voters, and thatâ€™s just wrong.Â The NRA endorsed Stephanie in this race because of her proven commitment to protecting our Second Amendment rights.â€
