NRA-PVF Endorses Kent Sorenson for Iowa’s 37th Senate District
Friday, October 01, 2010
Fairfax, Va. -- National Rifle Association Political Victory
Fund (NRA-PVF) has endorsed Kent Sorenson for election to the Iowa
Senate in Senate District 37. The endorsement was made Monday,
September 27. (Read the endorsement letter)
"The NRA-PVF is endorsing Kent Sorenson because he is a
strong defender of the Second Amendment freedoms of law-abiding gun
owners, hunters and sportsmen in Iowa," said Chris W. Cox, chairman
of the NRA-PVF.
As a member of the Iowa House, Sorenson has
demonstrated his commitment to our Second Amendment
rights by supporting Iowa's comprehensive "shall-issue" legislation
-- SF 2379 -- making Iowa the 39th "shall-issue" state.
He sponsored NRA-supported legislation to make Iowa a
"constitutional carry" state and cosponsored a number of pro-gun
bills, including legislation to allow Iowans to defend themselves
against deadly force.
In contrast, his opponent, Staci Appel, has embarked on an
anti-gun campaign against Sorenson, purporting that he is "too
pro-gun." Some of the attacks also suggest Staci Appel supports gun
restrictions that infringe on the freedoms that many Iowans and
Americans already enjoy. It is clear that Staci Appel is no friend
to gun owners in Iowa.
"Kent Sorenson is the clear choice for law-abiding gun owners in
Iowa's 37th Senate District," concluded Cox. "On
November 2, I urge all Iowa NRA members and gun owners to vote for
the one candidate in this race with a proven record of standing up
for our rights -- Kent Sorenson."
