Fairfax, Va. - The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Dino Rossi for election to the U.S. Senate in Washington this November.
"Dino Rossi is the gun owners' and hunters' choice in this race," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "He is a solid defender of the Second Amendment who will stand up for the rights of gun owners in Washington and across the United States, earning him the NRA-PVF endorsement."
During his time as a Washington State Senator, Dino Rossi supported pro-gun efforts and was always "A" rated by NRA-PVF. Rossi supports national right-to-carry reciprocity and efforts to reform the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. He also opposes reenacting the failed Clinton gun and magazine ban and believes sportsmen should have access to federally-owned or administered lands for hunting, fishing, trapping and recreational shooting.
Dino Rossi's commitment to preserving the Second Amendment has earned him an "A" rating and the endorsement of NRA-PVF.
"Dino Rossi will be a strong voice in fighting ongoing efforts by anti-gun politicians to dismantle the Second Amendment," Cox concluded. "We ask all Washington gun-owners and hunters to vote Dino Rossi for U.S. Senate on November 2nd."
