Fairfax, Va.—The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) today endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz for re-election to the U.S. Senate.
“Sen. Cruz is a champion of our Second Amendment freedoms and has always fought to protect the constitutional rights of law-abiding Americans,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman, NRA-PVF. “Ted Cruz's support of our fundamental freedoms is unwavering, and the NRA is proud to endorse him.”
Cruz has strongly opposed the Pelosi/Schumer/Bloomberg gun control agenda, including legislation that would criminalize the private transfer of a firearm between lifelong friends and many family members. He voted to confirm Neil Gorsuch, a pro-Second Amendment justice, to the U.S. Supreme Court and opposes anti-gun judicial nominees. In addition, Cruz supports national concealed carry reciprocity, which will ensure that law-abiding gun owners can carry concealed across state lines.
Cruz is being challenged by Beto O’Rourke, an “F” rated candidate who supports the Pelosi/Schumer gun control agenda. O’Rourke voted against national concealed carry reciprocity and supports criminalizing the private transfer of firearms. He also supports a ban on commonly owned rifles and ammunition.
“We can count on Ted Cruz to continue to stand up for our constitutional freedoms. The NRA encourages all freedom-loving Texans to vote Ted Cruz for U.S. Senate in November,” concluded Cox.
