NRA Election-Day Paper Wrapper Rejected


RICHMOND, VA — The National Rifle Association has contacted newspapers in Virginia and other battleground states about wrapping their home-delivered products on Nov. 4 in a plastic bag that is said to read: “Vote for Freedom … Defeat Obama.” That ad proposal was rejected by The Virginian-Pilot.

The National Rifle Association had hoped to deliver anti-Barack Obama advertising blasts to thousands of doorsteps on Election Day.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch leaders initially told employees that the paper intended to accept the ads. But when contacted about it this week, the newspaper’s strategic marketing director, Frazier Millner, said the Richmond newspaper “will not run the ad… for the NRA on Election Day or any other day.”
