Fairfax, Va. – Voters in Florida’s 13th congressional district elected pro-Second Amendment candidate David Jolly to the United States Congress in yesterday’s special election.
“On behalf of our 5 million members, I'd like to congratulate David Jolly on his victory in Florida's 13th congressional district. David Jolly's victory is a victory for the Second Amendment,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF. “Voters had a clear choice between Jolly who earned the endorsement of the NRA-PVF because of his commitment to protecting our fundamental Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and Alex Sink who earned an F-rating from the NRA-PVF and who aligned herself with Michael Bloomberg and his anti-gun agenda.
“The NRA mobilized our members and pro-gun voters in this congressional district. Thanks to our members who voted early and turned out yesterday to vote, their efforts made a significant difference and helped win the day for the only candidate in this race who supported their right to Bear Arms, their hunting heritage and their right to self-defense.
“I look forward to working with David Jolly in Congress to protect our Second Amendment rights,” concluded Cox.
