NRA-PVF Endorses Donald Lehe for Re-Election in Indiana's 15th House District

Friday, April 23, 2010

Fairfax, Va. -- The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is pleased to endorse State Representative Donald Lehe (R-15) for re-election in Indiana's Republican Primary on May 4.

"The NRA is synonymous with freedom, and Hoosiers in the 15th House District have a solid friend in Don Lehe," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "We are pleased to endorse Don, because we know he will continue to fight for and protect the Second Amendment for all law-abiding Hoosiers."

During his tenure in the General Assembly, Don Lehe has maintained a rock-solid pro-Second Amendment record, both in Indiana and around the country. In 2009, Representative Lehe joined a pro-gun amicus brief filed with the United States Supreme Court to support overturning Chicago's gun ban in McDonald v. Chicago. Most recently, Rep. Lehe supported closing access to Indiana's concealed carry permit database, preventing local Indiana governments from confiscating firearms from law-abiding citizens during states of emergency and enacting parking lot protections for gun-owning Hoosier employees.

Representative Donald Lehe's steadfast support for individual gun ownership rights earned him an "A" rating and endorsement by NRA-PVF.

"It's up to gun owners to vote for freedom in the May 4th primary," continued Cox. "Hoosiers value their firearm freedoms, and Don Lehe is the right person to represent them."

Chris W. Cox is NRA's chief lobbyist. He also serves as 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.
