Fairfax, VA—The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is pleased to endorse Congressman Ted Strickland in Ohio’s Democrat Gubernatorial Primary on May 2, 2006.
“The NRA is synonymous with defending the freedom of law-abiding Americans,” said Chris W. Cox, Chairman of NRA - PVF. “That is why we are pleased to endorse Ted Strickland, a Congressman with a pro-freedom voting record, for the Democratic nomination for the Governor of Ohio.”
During Rep. Strickland’s tenure in the U.S. House of Representatives, he demonstrated a commitment to defending the Second Amendment through his votes to stop frivolous lawsuits aimed at bankrupting our lawful American firearms industry and his opposition to legislation aimed at shutting down gun shows. Strickland also opposed the 1994 Federal Gun Ban that Congress allowed to expire in 2004.
Congressman Strickland’s strong, pro-sportsmen voting record in the U.S. House of Representatives has earned him an “A” rating by the NRA-PVF.
“It’s up to gun owners to vote for freedom on May 2nd,” stated Cox. “The good people of Ohio value their right to own firearms. In the Democratic primary, Ted Strickland is the best candidate to serve them.”
