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 Monica Wehby for United States Senate in Oregon.
Based on her support of and commitment to the Second Amendment, Wehby has earned an “AQ” rating from the NRA in the November 4, 2014 election. An “AQ” is reserved for a pro-gun candidate whose rating is based on pro-gun responses to the NRA-PVF Candidate Questionnaire and is the highest rating a candidate can receive without a voting record on Second Amendment issues.
“Monica’s strong support of our Second Amendment freedoms is needed in the U.S. Senate now more than ever," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF. “Our Right to Bear Arms faces an unprecedented attack from President Obama and elitist billionaires like former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Monica is the only candidate in this race who will stand up to the Obama-Bloomberg gun control agenda.”
Wehby has stated her strong opposition for any anti-gun nominees for the U.S. Supreme Court, such as Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. And she will oppose any treaty by the United Nations or any other global organization that would impose restrictions on American gun owners.
“We can count on Monica Wehby to stand up for our constitutional freedoms in the U.S. Senate. The NRA encourages all gun owners and sportsmen in Oregon to vote Monica Wehby for U.S. Senate on November 4,” concluded 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.
