FAIRFAX, Va.— Today, the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) released a new $1.7 million ad buy in North Carolina exposing Deborah Ross’ anti-freedom record. The ad, “Hometown,” brings NRA’s spending in North Carolina’s U.S. Senate race to nearly $4 million and will run on both broadcast and cable television in Asheville, Charlotte, Greensboro and Wilmington as well as digitally statewide.
“Deborah Ross has made it clear that she is not a friend of the Second Amendment,” said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA-ILA. “After her anti-gun efforts in the state legislature, she now wants to push the Bloomberg gun control agenda in the U.S. Senate. The NRA urges all North Carolina gun owners and sportsmen to defeat Deborah Ross.”
Deborah Ross holds an “F” rating from the NRA for her opposition to Second Amendment rights. As a lobbyist, Ross objected to the public sex offender registry. In the state legislature, she voted against the fundamental right to self-defense. As a U.S. Senator, there’s no doubt that Ross would be a rubber stamp for anti-gun Supreme Court nominees.
“Law-abiding North Carolinians deserve a senator who will defend their rights in Washington. That’s why Deborah Ross must be defeated in November,” concluded Cox.

Remember 2014 U S Senate Race with Senator Mary Landrieu was a victim of the same attack by the NRA. The only way to defeat the NRA is by voting/turnout. This race is tight and Ross can win. With Hillary Clinton as head of the ticket and Donald Trump in a deep spiral dive downward the 2016 race could be the election decided by women.
