List of congresspersons who received campaign money from the NRA in 2016

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

This list of congressional candidates who received campaign money from the NRA in the 2016 election cycle is from the nonpartisan group Center for Responsive Politics[1][2][3][4] which extracts campaign contribution data from the Federal Election Commission.[5] It includes current as well as former representatives and senators as well as candidates for office for the 2016 election cycle. This list shows only the direct contributions to each campaign but does not include more substantive contributions for lobbying and outside spending. In 2016, direct contributions (in this list) totaled $1,085,100; lobbying efforts (not in this list) totaled $3,188,000; and outside spending (not in this list) totaled $54,398,558.[5][6] The issue of gun control and politics has become a topic of debate following the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in 2018.[7][8][9][10]
