Blunt top recipient of NRA campaign donations, report says
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KTVI) – Missouri Senator Roy Blunt tops the list of sitting members of Congress in campaign donations made by the National Rifle Association (NRA).
The Washington Post reviewed all NRA campaign contributions to current members of Congress and published its results on Monday, just one day after 49 people were murdered in an Orlando nightclub shooting. The Post’s analysis, dating back to 1998, does not include donations from other gun advocacy groups. The nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics has a more detailed breakdown of campaign contributions involving the latter.
Over his 19-plus years in office, Blunt has received approximately $60,550 directly from the NRA.
