signs down that are not appropriate and she should bring her youtube ad down that says, um, marin county judge. >> reporter: she says she isn't the only one seemingly misleading. >> you have here david shane who says david shane, judge. >> reporter: there are nine other candidates. are you a judge and is anyone running in this race a judge? >> i'm not a judge. nobody in this race that is running is a judge. and who would want to be? i certainly wouldn't wan to be identified as a judge because if you are a judge, and you have 8 people running against you, you have to be a real loser of a judge. >> under the state elections code, 18350, it is a misdemeanor when a candidate misleads voters or assumes pretends or implies he or she is an incumbent of a public office when that's not the case. you think her sign is a little misleading? >> i don't unless you are educated under "common core"
and you don't understand it. >> reporter: so we'll definitely say on top of the race. someone will be elected judge for the judge who is vacating the seat come december. so stay tuned. in marin county, juliette goodrich, kpix 5. donald trump wins a key endorsement ahead of the election. the nra announced today that they are backing donald trump for president. trump spoke to the nra today saying that he is honored to receive the endorsement. he has consistently argued throughout his campaign that he is very strong on the second amendment. >> gun-free zones. we are getting rid of gun-free zones, okay? i can tell you.
