June 21, 2016 - Nine U.S. Senators crossed party lines during Monday’s votes on measures aimed at restricting access to firearms. Together, these Senators have received less than $40,000 from gun rights groups in this election cycle, a MapLight analysis has found. Most of that money has gone to one Republican Senator, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, who is facing a tough reelection fight. Gun rights groups have contributed $29,295 to Ayotte’s campaign, according to the analysis of data from the Center for Responsive Politics.
