Fairfax, Va.— The National Rifle Association’s Virginia State Director released the following statement following Ronnie Campbell’s election to the Virginia House of Delegates. Campbell will represent Virginia’s 24th House of Delegates District, which was vacated following Ben Cline's election to Congress. The NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action mobilized NRA members and Second Amendment supporters in the district with a robust mail and phone banking campaign.
“On behalf of Virginia’s NRA members and Second Amendment supporters, I want to congratulate Ronnie on his hard fought victory. Ronnie’s election, which bolsters the Second Amendment majority in the House of Delegates, highlights Virginia’s commitment to the Second Amendment. Virginians have elected pro-Second Amendment majorities to both the House of Delegates and the Senate. Virginians continue to elect pro-gun candidates such as Ronnie because they know these NRA-endorsed candidates will support their right to protect and defend themselves.” – Chris Kopacki, NRA Virginia state director
