Updated: NRA changes rating of candidate Aaron Holley from F to ?



In the heart of West Virginia, where conservative values run deep and the Second Amendment is revered, one candidate for the House of Delegates is causing a stir among gun rights advocates. Aaron Holley, a Republican vying for a seat in the state legislature’s 22nd District in Eastern Cabell County, has found himself in a dire position – initially receiving an F grade rating from the National Rifle Association (NRA), a rarity for a GOP contender in this firearm-friendly state. The NRA then changed the rating to a ?.

According to the NRA the ? rating means: Refused to answer the NRA-PVF candidate questionnaire or a candidate who has made contradictory statements or taken positions that are inconsistent with the candidate’s answers to the NRA-PVF candidate questionnaire or previous record. A rating of “?” often indicates indifference, if not outright hostility, to gun owners’ and sportsmen’s rights.

For staunch supporters of the Second Amendment, the NRA serves as a beacon of endorsement, championing candidates who pledge unwavering allegiance to gun rights and responsible firearm ownership. However, the recent revelation of Holley’s rating has sparked questions and concerns among West Virginia’s conservative base – especially considering his self-promoted endorsement from the liberal, pro LGBTQ and anti-health freedom West Virginia Chamber of Commerce.

The NRA’s grading system is a critical metric for gun rights enthusiasts, serving as a litmus test for candidates’ commitment to defending the Second Amendment.

Holley is challenging incumbent Daniel Linville who has been a staunch supporter of 2A rights in West Virginia and received the endorsement from the NRA.
