NRA Endorses Lindsey Graham for U.S. Senate in South Carolina

Friday, September 12, 2014

Fairfax, Va. – On behalf of our five million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse Lindsey Graham for U.S. Senate in South Carolina.

“Lindsey Graham is committed to defending our Right to Keep and Bear Arms from President Obama and elitist billionaires like Michael Bloomberg who will stop at nothing to take away our freedoms,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF.

Graham stood up to the Obama-Bloomberg gun control agenda, including their so-called “universal” background check system that would criminalize the private transfer of a firearm between life-long friends and many family members. He also opposes any treaty by the United Nations or any other global organization that would impose restrictions on American gun owners.

Additionally, Graham voted for national concealed carry reciprocity, which would allow law-abiding Americans to carry a concealed firearm in any other state that does not prohibit concealed carry.

“On behalf of the NRA’s five million members across the country, we urge all NRA members, gun owners and sportsmen in South Carolina to vote Lindsey Graham for U.S. Senate on November 4,” added Cox.


Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America's oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. More than five million members strong, NRA continues to uphold the Second Amendment and advocates enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the armed services.
