Second Amendment Supporters Prevail in Other Key Races as Well

The NRA Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) congratulates Courtney Rogers for winning the Republican primary in Tennessee House District 45.

"This election represents a great victory for the Second Amendment," said NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox.  "As a person who places principle over politics, Lt. Colonel Rogers will bring leadership and integrity to the legislature.  She earned an "A" rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF, and we are proud that a strong supporter of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms will be on the ballot in November."

Second Amendment supporters won in primary elections across the state. Joining Courtney Rogers in the November 6 general election are:  NRA-PVF endorsed Doug Overbey (R) in Senate District 4; David Hawk (R) in House District 5; and Josh Evans (R) in House District 66.

"NRA will always champion Second Amendment rights in Tennessee and across the United States. We look forward to working with Courtney Rogers and all of our supporters in Nashville during the next legislative session to help secure passage of the Safe Commute Act," concluded Cox.
