NRA Akin to Re-elect Safe GOP Congressman

Posted May 15, 2007 at 10:37am

The National Rifle Association’s political action committee was scheduled Monday to hold a “shoot out” fundraiser for Rep. Todd Akin (R).

The Akin Shoot Out, set for the Prince George’s County Trap and Skeet Center in suburban Maryland, included a trap, skeet and sporting clays event followed by a luncheon. It was asking for $2,500 from sponsors, $1,000 from political action committees and $500 from individuals.

Akin won re-election in the 2nd district last year with 61 percent of the vote and at this point looks to be in good shape for re-election.
