The ISRA is the "Illinois State Rifle Association", the state-level affiliate of the National Rifle Association (NRA). This is their 2012 endorsement list (full original doc here).

2012 endorsement list from the Illinois State Rifle Association including Toi Hutchison.
Goal ThermometerThis is a Chicago-based district. There's no need for us to elect anyone who would be on any list with Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, Joe Walsh, or any of the other Republicans on this list. Yet there is Toi Hutchison, proudly wearing the "E" for "endorsed", scooping up their cash, and ignoring the 500 gun-related deaths in her backyard in 2012 alone.

We'll never get sensible gun regulations until we purge Congress of the NRA, and this is where we start. This is where we stop being afraid of the NRA, and begin making its endorsement toxic. This is where we finally stop ceding ground to the NRA, and finally go on the offensive.

We're almost at 3,000 contributors and over $60,000 for Orange to Blue endorsee Robin Kelly. Your dollars specifically allowed Kelly to be the first (and only) candidate in the race to go on the air. You made this happen:

Now let's finish the week strong. We've only got two more weeks before the special election. Let's make them count. Contribute to Kelly today.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
