Fairfax, Va.-- The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) has endorsed Krayton Kerns for re-election to the State House of Representatives in Montana's 58th House District this November.
Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF said, "The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund endorsed Krayton Kerns because he is a defender of the Second Amendment and an advocate for the self-defense rights of law-abiding gun owners in Montana."
During his service in the State House of Representatives and as a member of the House Judiciary Committee, Representative Kerns supported many pro-gun measures. He was the primary sponsor of House Bill 228, last session's landmark self defense bill, and he co-sponsored the resolution supporting the possession of firearms for self-defense in national parks. Kerns is also a supporter of hunting and sportsmen's issues.
Rep. Kerns' pro-gun record in the Montana State House of Representatives has earned him an "A+" rating. He is an NRA Life Member and was recently chosen as a recipient of NRA's Defender of Freedom award. This honor is bestowed on elected officials who are among the strongest defenders of the freedoms of law-abiding gun owners, hunters and sportsmen. The award will be formally presented to Kerns in January in Helena.
"We ask all NRA Members and gun owners in Montana's 58th State House District to vote Krayton Kerns for State Representative on November 2," Cox concluded.
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.
