Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice President of the National Rifle Association (NRA), speaks during the NRA's annual meeting in Nashville, TennesseeBy Tim Ghianni NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Reuters) – Republicans, guns and money will dominate a National Rifle Association meeting that starts on Thursday and is expected to attract about 70,000 people to Nashville, organizers said. The gathering includes a forum on Friday with a dozen prominent Republicans, including announced presidential candidate U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and others who are expected to seek the Republican nomination in 2016. They make sure their friends know who is protecting gun rights and who is not,” Cruz spokesman Rick Tyler said of NRA members. “We hope they will help get the vote out for Ted Cruz.” Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, former Texas Governor Rick Perry, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, Indiana Governor Mike Pence and Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal also are among expected speakers at the forum.
