NRA-PVF Endorses Arizona Governor Jan Brewer for Re-election

Wednesday, June 23, 2010

Fairfax, Va. -- The National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Arizona Governor Jan Brewer in the state’s August 24th Republican primary election.

Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF stated, "Governor Brewer has earned this endorsement because of her outstanding record of support for Second Amendment issues as Governor, as Secretary of State and as a state legislator. She is a champion and strong defender of the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding Arizona gun owners, hunters and sportsmen."

During her tenure, Governor Brewer has defended and protected Arizonans' Second Amendment rights by strengthening Arizona’s preemption statute; recognizing the right to carry in restaurants; and protecting the right of employees to keep a firearm locked in their vehicles while parked on company property. Most recently, she became the second governor in the nation to sign a law recognizing the right of all lawful citizens to carry a firearm without a permit. Jan Brewer also maintained a perfect voting record during her twelve years of service in the Arizona Senate and House of Representatives.

Brewer’s support for the Second Amendment as the incumbent governor has earned her an "A+" rating and endorsement from NRA-PVF.

"On August 24th, I urge all Arizona NRA members and gun owners to vote Jan Brewer in the Republican primary election," Cox concluded.

Chris W. Cox is executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. He also serves as chairman of NRA-PVF. 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.
