NRA Endorses Richard Mourdock

The Hill: NRA endorses Lugar opponent, blasts senator's 'contempt' for gun owners
The National Rifle Association officially endorsed Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock (R) over Sen. Dick Lugar (R-Ind.) Wednesday morning, blasting Lugar for his "seeming contempt for gun owners in Indiana." 
The endorsement, first reported by The Hill, is a body blow to the longtime senator's hopes of surviving a tough primary against Mourdock, who has Tea Party support. 
Mourdock sent out a press release about the endorsement yesterday.
