NRA-PVF Celebrates Landslide Victories in 2009 Elections

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

FAIRFAX, VA – The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) endorsed candidates in Virginia, including Bob McDonnell for governor, Ken Cuccinelli for attorney general and Bill Bolling for lieutenant governor, won yesterday’s general election. Additionally, 98 percent (58 out of 59) of NRA-PVF endorsed candidates in the Virginia House of Delegates won their respective races.

“Candidates who support the constitutional rights of law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen prevailed in up and down ballot races yesterday,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. “These exceptional numbers are an indication of the solid support and influence of the Second Amendment and the NRA on voters.”

NRA-PVF actively campaigned across Virginia and other key states to secure the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners. In Virginia, Steve Shannon, candidate for attorney general, was the only statewide candidate to actively campaign on a gun control platform. He lost by double-digits. In New Jersey’s gubernatorial race, NRA-PVF urged NRA members and gun owners to vote against ‘F’-rated Jon Corzine. He was also defeated.

“We are pleased at the outcome of these important elections and are thankful to NRA members and gun owners who continue to exercise their constitutional freedoms,” continued Cox. “NRA is looking forward to working with these newly-elected officials.”

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund is responsible for political candidate rankings. These are based on candidate voting records, public statements and responses to NRA-PVF questionnaires.
