Gov. Rick Perry gets endorsement from NRA

DALLAS (AP) - Gov. Rick Perry, touting his pro-gun credentials in his re-election campaign, is picking up the endorsement of the National Rifle Association.

Perry was getting the endorsement Thursday at the McClelland Gun Shop in Dallas. Perry had been expected to get the nod from the gun lobby group, but the Republican is hoping to draw attention to the issue in his competitive race for an unprecedented third term.

Perry says his Democratic opponent, Bill White, is weak on guns.

White says he strongly backs individual gun rights.

The election is Nov. 2.
