Fairfax, VA -- The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Governor Chet Culver for re-election in the Iowa gubernatorial race on November 2.
"Chet Culver has earned the NRA-PVF endorsement for his commitment to preserving our Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF.
As Governor, Culver has demonstrated his commitment to our Second Amendment rights by signing landmark right-to-carry legislation and making Iowa the 37th "shall-issue" state. He also signed legislation that improved deployed service members' ability to maintain their right-to-carry permits while serving their country and opposed an increase in hunting license fees. Because of his support for individual gun ownership rights, Chet Culver has earned an "A" rating from the NRA-PVF.
Cox continued, "We urge all Iowa gun owners and sportsmen to vote Chet Culver for Governor on November 2."
