Michels Forced To Walk Back NRA Endorsement

Republican gubernatorial candidate Tim Michels is having to scrub an NRA endorsement from his advertising because he never got one.

A flyer stating that Michels had the endorsement of the National Rifle Association went out over the weekend, but the NRA says it hasn’t endorsed anyone in the Wisconsin race.

Michels’ campaign says that message was in error and it’s being fixed now. That flyer will be edited to say that Michels got a positive rating on a candidate’s questionnaire from the NRA.
