The Question Every NRA-Backed Elected Official is Dreading Today

February 22, 2018

In case you missed it, during yesterday’s CNN town hall, 17-year old Cameron Kasky, a student and survivor of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, confronted Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) about the more than $1 million in campaign support he’s received from the NRA.

During the exchange, Cameron Kasky pointedly asked Sen. Rubio if he would refuse future financial support from the NRA, which has repeatedly worked to weaken U.S. gun laws and stood in the way of progress on common-sense gun safety measures. Sen. Rubio declined to reject the NRA’s funding in the future.

WATCH the incredible exchange below.

Other NRA-backed elected officials should expect the same question.
