The NRA Political Victory Fund is the political action committee of the Virginia-based National Rifle Association. The committee supports pro-gun candidates mainly through independent spending in state and federal races nationwide. 

The group launched a 30-second television ad in mid-October 2010 - here - that said legislation to legalize the carrying of concealed weapons had twice been vetoed by the Democratic inucumbent governor Jim Doyle and that Democratic candidate for governor Tom Barrett would do the same. "It's time we elect a governor who believes in our right to self-defense.  It's time for (Republican candidate for governor) Scott Walker," the ad said.

Last active election: 2008
