NRA-PVF Endorses Jerry Kilgore <br> in Virginia`s Gubernatorial Primary Election

Wednesday, June 1, 2005


Fairfax, VA – The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse Jerry Kilgore in the June 14, 2005 Gubernatorial Primary Election. 


 “As the former Virginia Attorney General, and a former Secretary of Public Safety, Jerry Kilgore understands that the key to reducing violent crime lies in strictly prosecuting violent criminals – not increasing firearm regulations.  He is a true leader who firmly believes in the Second Amendment,” Chris W. Cox, NRA chief lobbyist, stated.


Based on past pro-gun efforts and a firm pledge to continue to protect Virginia’s proud hunting and outdoor heritage, Jerry Kilgore earned an NRA-PVF “A” rating, the highest endorsement rating allocated to candidates. 


“I ask hunters, sportsmen and gun owners to use their voice in this Primary race.  If you value your Second Amendment rights and want to preserve your strong hunting heritage in Virginia, vote for the candidate who has proven to be an outspoken advocate for law-abiding firearms owners.  Vote for Jerry Kilgore on June 14.”  


Chris W. Cox also serves as Chairman of NRA - PVF.
