FAIRFAX, Va. -- The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is pleased to announce its endorsement of Michael Watson for Mississippi secretary of state in the 2019 primary election.
“During his time as a state senator, Michael Watson voted consistently on behalf of law-abiding gun owners and has remained a steadfast supporter of the Second Amendment,” said Jason Ouimet, chairman, NRA-PVF. “If Watson is elected, Mississippians can rest assured their freedoms will be protected.”
Watson is an “A” rated candidate. He has supported a number of bills that protect the right of personal self-defense, a bill that protects shooting ranges and a measure to put the right to hunt and fish amendment on the ballot.
“Michael Watson is a strong advocate of the Second Amendment, and the NRA encourages all freedom-loving Mississippians to vote for Michael Watson on Aug. 6.”
