He is the NRA’s major public face and voice. Sheryl Stolberg of the New York Times says, ‘He is the NRA – he’s built the NRA.’ She told Frontline The membership wanted a tough guy … somebody that drew a red line, who didn’t compromise, who didn’t cave.

He is now married to Susan, who helps raise money for the association and is a co-chairwoman of its women’s leadership forum, which sponsors an annual luncheon that has featured prominent political spouses including Callista Gingrich and Ann Romney. ‘He’s a student of it – lives, eats […]

She didn’t think so, saying he and Samah don’t often go to DC parties – they’d rather spend the time with their kids.” “That’s promising,” Jay said. “I mentioned my visit to the Chamber and my interest in meeting Mr. Norquist, to thank him for his actions in behalf of small business and in minimizing corporate taxes.
