Maryland Senator Raffles Off AR-15 for Re-Election Campaign

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A state senator from Frederick County says his re-election campaign is raffling off an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle.

Republican Michael Hough (HUFF) announced the raffle in a statement Tuesday. He says the rifle complies with Maryland firearm laws. The prize includes 250 rounds of ammunition.


Hough says he’s a strong defender of “God-given” Second Amendment rights for law-abiding citizens.

A number of other political candidates have announced similar contests including Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Corey Stewart and Tennessee Republican state Rep. Andy Holt.

Hough’s district includes part of Carroll County.
