NRA And GOP Illegally Coordinated On Senate Races

The Trace reports:

The National Rifle Association appears to have illegally coordinated its political advertising with Republican candidates in at least three recent high-profile Senate races, according to Federal Communications Commission records. In Senate races in Missouri and Montana in 2018, and North Carolina in 2016, the gun group’s advertising blitzes on behalf of GOP candidates Josh Hawley, Matt Rosendale, and Richard Burr were authorized by the very same media consultancy that the candidates themselves used — an apparent violation of laws designed to prevent independent groups from synchronizing their efforts with political campaigns.

Last month it was reported that the NRA also illegally coordinated its ad spending with the Trump’s 2016 campaign. Hit the link to see the relevant documents in this latest report. And don’t expect the FEC to actually do anything.
