(Team Hof) – Dennis Hof – candidate for Nevada State Assembly District 36 (Rural Nevada) – has earned an “A” rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA).
The rating itself is rare, as the NRA doesn’t often rate third-party and independent candidates unless the candidate is viable and has a credible chance to win. Recent internal campaign polling shows Hof and his opponent – tax-hiking incumbent Assemblyman James “The Big Selloutski” Oscarson – in a dead heat.
To be fair, the NRA has endorsed Mr. Selloutski in the race, but that’s simply following the NRA practice of endorsing incumbents who also have an “A” rating. The “A(Q)” rating is for non-incumbents, such as Mr. Hof, who are right on gun issues per the NRA questionnaire but don’t yet have an actual voting record for the NRA to review
“I’ll get the full ‘A’ rating, with the NRA’s endorsement, after the 2017 legislative session,” Hof promised.
Despite his rating, Mr. Oscarson – as usual – showed himself to be less than reliable when it comes to gun rights. He was a member of the infamous “Not So Great 8” who conspired last session to kill Amanda’s Law – a bill allowing campus carry on Nevada’s colleges and universities.
“Mr. Oscarson is as dependable on protecting your gun rights as he is on protecting your wallets,” Hof noted. “He promised to oppose tax hikes before voting for the largest tax hike in Nevada history. His word is simply no good. You can’t trust a thing this guy says.”
