NRA's Political Victory Fund Endorses Utah Governor Spencer Cox for Re-election

The National Rifle Association's Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to announce its full endorsement of Governor Spencer Cox in the 2024 Utah Primary Election as he seeks re-election for a second term as Governor of the State of Utah. Governor Cox received an “A+” rating from NRA-PVF, the highest grade possible, for being a steadfast defender of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

This endorsement is a recognition of Governor Cox’s unwavering commitment to the Second Amendment and his dedicated efforts to protect the rights of Utahans to defend themselves and their families during his tenure as Governor.

"As Governor, Spencer Cox signed critical legislation into law to guarantee the freedoms of law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen in the Beehive State,” said Randy Kozuch, NRA-PVF Chairman. “As a result of enacting permitless carry into law, citizens in Utah can now exercise their constitutional right to conceal carry without first having to obtain government permission. This was a tremendous victory in the continued fight to defend Second Amendment rights."

In a time where misguided calls for restrictive gun control are rampant, Spencer Cox’s resolute stance to expand gun rights in the face of immense national pressure shows he can be trusted to carry our precious freedoms forward into another term as Governor. NRA members are encouraged to amplify this endorsement and rally behind a Governor whose track record undeniably accentuates the rights and liberties of Utah’s law-abiding gun owners.

"Governor Cox’s steadfast dedication to the Second Amendment is evident in his numerous enactments as Governor including signing legislation that enhanced Utah’s firearm preemption law and, most recently, legislation that provides important financial privacy protections for gun owners when purchasing firearms and ammunition,” added Kozuch. “NRA and our millions of members are confident that Governor Cox will relentlessly advocate for our Second Amendment rights and continue to advance our fundamental liberties. In Governor Cox, Utah would continue to have a strong champion who will defend against any erosion to our constitutional freedoms.”

The National Rifle Association urges all its dedicated members and Second Amendment proponents in Utah to rally behind Governor Spencer Cox in the imminent election, ensuring that Utah continues to shine as a symbol of freedom and constitutionally protected rights.
