Statement from Chris W. Cox, <br> NRA Chief Lobbyist and NRA-PVF Chairman, <br> on Oklahoma Senate Race

Friday, October 29, 2004

FAIRFAX, VA - The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) gave “A” ratings to both Tom Coburn and Brad Carson in the Oklahoma Senate race. However, neither candidate received the endorsement for the general election.

The Oklahoma Democratic Party has a mailing to Oklahoma gun owners and hunters with misleading information concerning an NRA-PVF endorsement.  This is a blatant attempt to mislead Oklahoma voters.

The Oklahoma Democratic Party must cease and desist this campaign of deception.  The NRA remains neutral in this race thus far, but reserves the right to get involved if our position continues to be distorted.


Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America’s oldest civil rights and sportsmen`s group.  Four million members strong, NRA continues its mission to uphold Second Amendment rights and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime.  The Association remains the nation`s leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.
