Is he a Desert Eagle .44?
Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is announcing its endorsement of Joe Coors for U.S. House of Representatives in Colorado's 7th District in the November 6 general election.
"Joe Coors is committed to protecting our Second Amendment freedoms and hunting heritage," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "Because of his strong support of our rights, Joe Coors has received an "AQ" rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF. We urge all NRA members and gun owners in Colorado's Seventh District to vote Joe Coors for U.S. House of Representatives in the November 6 election."
Joe Coors is a member of the (wait for it!) Coors family, whose family philanthropic foundations (Coors Foundation et al.) have given huge sums of money to right-wing groups and causes like the National Rifle Association for decades. So if it's a news story any time one of the many conservative groups funded by the Coors family endorses Joe Coors, there are gonna be a lot of news stories. It would be easier to write one story saying "here are all the groups funded by Coors," and then people will just know when they get the press releases what's up with that.
COMING UP: Joe Coors: not a beer...is he Mr. Drummond from Diff'rent Strokes?
Or a lawnmower?
...and much more!
