David Hogg calls out Senator John McCain over NRA contributions

A student from the Parkland shooting tragedy has publicly called out Senator John McCain for receiving significant financial support from the National Rifle Association.

David Hogg tweeted to the cancer-stricken senator Friday, “Why do you take so much money from the NRA?”

The teenager posted the tweet to an unrelated message McCain had posted about a state redevelopment project, reports the Blaze.

While the six-term senator has not yet issued a response, a New York Times op-ed from October pointed out that McCain has received the most money from the NRA of any U.S. senator over the course of his or her career—a total which exceeds $7.7 million.

Hogg has become one of the leading voices calling for gun control in the wake of the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
