NRA Gives Ed Carter High Rating
S.C. House District 97 candidate Ed Carter receives 'AQ' rating for position on guns.
S.C. House District 97 Republican candidate Ed Carter has clinched a key rating from pro-gun ownership advocacy group National Rifle Association.
He received an "AQ," which means a candidate is "a pro-gun candidate whose rating is based solely on the candidate's responses to the NRA-PVF Candidate Questionnaire and who does not have a voting record on Second Amendment issues."
His opponent Jordan Bryngelson, who just won an endorsement from South Carolina Club for Growth, was rated with a question mark. The organization described the rating as "refused to answer the NRA-PVF Candidate Questionnaire, often an indication of indifference, if not outright hostility, to gun owners' and sportsmen's rights."
