Election 2007 Wrap Up: 89% Of NRA-PVF Endorsed Candidates Elected -- But The Fight Is Far From Over!

Friday, November 9, 2007

While the two major political parties may be receiving mixed reviews for their candidates' performances in Tuesday's elections, one truth remains unchanged -- pro-gun candidates, irrespective of party affiliation, win elections!   

In contests in Kentucky, Mississippi, New Jersey, and Virginia, NRA's Political Action Committee, the NRA Political Victory Fund, issued 235 endorsements, of which a staggering 89% (210 out of 235) of candidates won their elections!  These victories come on the heels of the election of Louisiana's Governor-elect, NRA-PVF-endorsed Bobby Jindal (R), who amassed enough votes in the primary election to avoid a runoff election. 

Candidates running for office at all levels in 2008 should take note -- supporting the rights of law-abiding gun owners is a winning issue!  Or, put another way, candidates who campaign against the Second Amendment do so at their own peril! 

But will this trend extend into the 2008 elections?  We cannot rest on our laurels going into 2008, as the past may not be prologue. In order for pro-gun candidates to succeed in next year's contests they are going to need your vote and your active support! 

It is therefore critical that NRA members and gun owners register to vote.  For voter registration information and applications, click here (link to:  https://ssl.capwiz.com/nra/e4/nvra/?action=form).   

Additionally, it is important that, as the 2008 election season kicks into high gear, supporters of the Second Amendment work together locally and actively volunteer to assist pro-gun candidates' campaigns.  To identify and contact your local NRA-ILA Election Volunteer Coordinator (EVC-a local NRA member who volunteers to work with NRA members and gun owners to provide pro-gun candidates with volunteer support), please click here (link to:  http://www.nraila.org/ActionCenter/GetInvolvedLocally/EVCbyState.aspx). 

Working together we can begin working NOW to ensure we are prepared to meet the challenges and opportunities that lay before us in next year's elections.
