McDaniel Invites DeLay on Hunt Near Bono

AUGUST 24, 2006 - Posted at 3:32 p.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Democratic nominee for attorney general Dustin McDaniel has invited his Republican opponent Gunner DeLay in the November election to join him on an opening day dove hunt next weekend.  McDaniel has spent almost every opening day of dove season in the same field near Bono since he was 16 years old.  He says he thinks it would do both him and DeLay good to put aside politics for one day.  He says a hunt together might set a sportsmanlike and gentlemanly tone for the rest of the campaign.

DeLay has criticized McDaniel as being weak on gun rights.

But McDaniel notes that he has a hunting license and a gun and is a member of the NRA.

DeLay says McDaniel's invitation is an attempt to distract attention from a radio ad unveiled on DeLay's Web site this week that criticizes McDaniel's involvement in a lawsuit against a gun manufacturer.  In a message to McDaniel, DeLay said he'll be too busy knocking on doors next weekend to go hunting.
