NRA Launches Seven-Figure Ad Campaign in Indiana

Fairfax, Va.—  The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) today launched a seven-figure ad campaign to inform voters that Sen. Joe Donnelly cannot be trusted to support their constitutional right to self-defense. The television ad, titled DC Joe , will air on cable and broadcast stations.

 “Joe Donnelly joined forces with Chuck Schumer and anti-gun liberals to vote against our fundamental right to self-defense,” said Chris W. Cox, NRA-PVF chairman.  "Donnelly’s vote against the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court sends a clear message to Hoosiers that he can’t be trusted to protect their constitutional rights.”

 The Supreme Court is divided on the individual right to keep a firearm in the home for self-defense. Donnelly’s vote against confirming Judge Kavanaugh to the Court was a vote against the fundamental right to self-defense.

 "Contrary to what Joe Donnelly says in Indiana, he has supported the gun control agenda of Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi by voting in favor of gun control in Washington, D.C.,” continued Cox.

Joe Donnelly is “D” rated by the NRA and supports the Schumer/Pelosi/Bloomberg gun control agenda. He voted to criminalize the private transfer of firearms between close friends and some family members, which according to the Obama Justice Department, is only enforceable through a federal firearms registry. Donnelly also supports ammunition restrictions on law-abiding citizens.

 “Joe Donnelly abandoned Indiana values to curry favor with liberal anti-gun elites in Washington, D.C.," said Cox. "Mike Braun is the only candidate in this race who we can trust to protect our Second Amendment freedoms."

DC Joe Script

ANNOUNCER: Do you believe you have a right to self-defense?

The Supreme Court is divided.

Liberal Justices oppose your rights.

And Joe Donnelly is on THEIR side.

Donnelly voted against your gun rights by voting against Brett Kavanaugh.

After 12 years in Washington, D-C Joe has gotta go.
