MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Republican state representatives running for a northwestern Wisconsin state Senate seat are sniping over dueling mailings bearing the logo of the National Rifle Association.

The NRA has not endorsed anyone in the race for Wisconsin's 10th Senate district, which extends as far north as Webster. The seat is open due to the resignation of Sen. Sheila Harsdorf.

Tuesday's Republican primary pits state Rep. Shannon Zimmerman, of River Falls, against Rep. Adam Jarchow, of Balsam Lake.

This week Jarchow sent voters a mailing with an NRA sticker in a format that is nearly identical to one the NRA uses when it endorses a candidate. Zimmerman calls it a "falsification" that "crosses ethical and perhaps legal lines."

But Jarchow said Friday that Zimmerman is being a hypocrite because he sent a mailing earlier bearing the NRA logo.

The NRA did not immediately respond for a request for comment.
