In the end, I’m happy to say that the NRA’s campaign against me was very effective.
I lost, but the result was that I was able to say I am an honorable person, and I can say, ‘Well, the NRA is going after me.’
But it was an effective campaign, and if you are an honorable man, you have to know how to use the power of the state to defeat a man.
[The NRA] did not have the resources to win the election, and they were not able to mobilize enough people to defeat me.
They were able to do it, and now they have a candidate.
They’re going to have to work to defeat him, because the NRA has been weakened.
They don’t have the same clout they once did, and we’re going after their candidate.
