Indianapolis Democrat Mayor Joe Hogsett used the NRA as a vehicle to attack GOP Mayoral candidate Jim Merritt. In addition to calling out Merritt’s voting record as a state senator, Hogsett went after his support of the National Rifle Association.
Hogsett claimed that Merritt takes his “marching orders” from the NRA, and that gun rights is out of step with Marion County voters. Hogsetts NRA attack is ill-timed, as the NRA is holding it’s annual meeting in Indianapolis in April. The event will bring an estimated $55 million to the city.
Tony Katz talks about the personal nature of the attack, and how out of touch Mayor Hogsett is with Indianapolis and America.
