NRA-PVF Endorses Johnny Isakson for U.S. Senate

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

Fairfax, Va. – Today the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is announcing its endorsement of Johnny Isakson for election to the U.S. Senate this November.

 

“The NRA-PVF is endorsing Johnny Isakson because he is a staunch defender of the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding gun owners, hunters and sportsmen,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. “His solid and consistent pro-gun support has earned him an ‘A’ rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF.”

 

As a United States Senator, Isakson has demonstrated a consistent commitment to Second Amendment rights by voting for legislation that prevents bogus lawsuits against gun manufacturers and prohibits gun confiscation during states of emergency.  He voted to restore self-defense rights in our nation’s capital, as well as signing the pro-gun congressional amicus brief to the Supreme Court supporting the individual right to keep and bear arms in the Heller case. Isakson also signed the pro-gun congressional amicus brief arguing that the Second Amendment guarantees a fundamental right that protects all Americans in the McDonald case. Additionally, he voted against confirmation of anti-gun Supreme Court Justice nominees Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor. 

 

“On November 2nd, I urge all Georgia NRA members, hunters and gun owners to vote Johnny Isakson for U.S. Senate,” Cox concluded.

 

Chris W. Cox is NRA's chief lobbyist. 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.
