She added, “I bet I’ll beat him.”

The congresswoman’s office didn’t return ITK’s request for additional comment about her suggestion for a skeet shooting match.

Obama added while his school-age daughters don’t participate, he often invites guests, saying, “I have a profound respect for the traditions of hunting that trace back in this country for generations. And I think those who dismiss that out of hand make a big mistake.”
