As the Democratic Party and President Barack Obama make moves on gun policy, former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland’s past record on the issue has put him under scrutiny.
When he was up for re-election in 2010, the Democrat was given an A-plus rating by the National Rifle Association, which endorsed him over Republican John Kasich, who got a B.
“We don’t give a lot A-pluses,” said Catherine Mortensen, a spokeswoman for the NRA. Kasich would go on to defeat Strickland.
