The biggest winner from the 2014-midterm elections is the NRA, which scored an astounding 91.2 percent win rate, according to the NRA.
The Washington Examiner reports that the “Northern Virginia-based lobby and education group spent about $35 million, more than in many past elections, and saw 229 of 251 candidates endorsed by the NRA and its NRA-Political Victory Fund win.”
“Our members came out in droves and voted for their rights and their freedom,” NRA spokesman Andrew Arulanandam told Secrets. “This was one of the most successful election cycles in a decade,” he added.
As examples of their big wins, Arulanadam pointed to the defeats of North Carolina senator Kay Hagan and Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor. Both candidates received incredibly low grades from the NRA and were replaced by “A” graded replacements.
Hagan lost her seat to Thom Tillis while Pryor lost to Representative Tom Cotton.
