NRA-PVF Endorses Dr. Mark Shelton for Texas State Representative

Monday, November 26, 2007

FAIRFAX, VA-The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Dr. Mark Shelton in the special election runoff for Texas State Representative in District 97. Voters will go to the polls on December 18 to determine who replaces retiring State Rep. Anna Mowery.

"Mark Shelton is the right choice in this runoff election," Chris W. Cox stated. "He is a champion for gun owners and a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. Because of this he has earned an 'A' rating from NRA-PVF."

Cox continued, "We've seen major pro-gun legislation, such as Emergency Powers protections and the Castle Doctrine, become law in Texas. To successfully continue these positive movements, gun-owners and NRA members must continue to vote for candidates who support our Second Amendment at all levels of local, state and federal government."

Chris W. Cox serves as Executive Director and Chairman of NRA-PVF. The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund is responsible for political candidate rankings. These are based on candidate voting records, public statements and responses to NRA-PVF questionnaires.
