NRA-Endorsed Dan Sullivan Wins Arkansas State Senate Primary

Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action congratulates A-rated state Rep. Dan Sullivan for his win in the Republican primary for Arkansas' 21st senate district. Sullivan has represented the state House 53rd district since 2015.

"On behalf of our 5 million members, the National Rifle Association commends Dan Sullivan on his well-run campaign and his significant primary win," said NRA Arkansas State Director Matt Herriman. “His leadership and votes demonstrate a strong dedication to our Second Amendment freedoms."

Sullivan won against incumbent state Sen. John Cooper who voted against self-defense legislation in a Senate Judiciary Committee vote last year. 

With the NRA's endorsement, Sullivan won with almost 60 percent of the vote.   

"Once again, NRA members and Second Amendment supporters made a difference by showing up to the polls and voting. A majority of voters rejected the agenda of Michael Bloomberg's gun control groups, and they sent a clear message in support of our Second Amendment right to self-defense. Like all law-abiding gun owners, they know they can count on NRA-endorsed candidates to support their right to defend their families and homes," Herriman concluded. 

As Sullivan is currently running unopposed, he will become the next senator for the Arkansas 21st senate district on Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020. 

Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.
