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 Butch Otter for reelection as Governor of Idaho.
Based on his support of and commitment to the Second Amendment, Otter has earned an “A” rating from the NRA-PVF in the 2014 general election. An “A” rating is reserved for a pro-gun elected official who has consistently supported the NRA’s position on votes of importance to gun owners and sportsmen.
“In the past four years, Butch Otter has done more than almost any other governor in the country to expand Second Amendment freedoms,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of the NRA-PVF. "He is a champion of our Second Amendment rights."
Otter signed into law legislation expanding hunting rights and supported the Right to Hunt and Fish Amendment to protect the state’s unique hunting heritage. He also signed into law legislation prohibiting local governments from enforcing regulations and penalties that infringe on concealed carry rights.
“We can continue to count on Butch Otter to stand up for our constitutional freedoms in the Gem State,” added Cox. “On behalf of the NRA’s five million members, I want to thank Butch for his steadfast support of the Second Amendment and urge all NRA members, gun owners and sportsmen in Idaho to vote Butch Otter for Governor on November 4.”
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.
