Ben Cline Endorsed by NRA-PVF
Lexington, VA – In a letter sent to Ben Cline’s Congressional Campaign yesterday, the NRA Political Victory Fund announced their endorsement of Ben Cline for Congress in the 6th Congressional District.
Their letter read in part:
“Thank you for standing strong for freedom and defending NRA members and law-abiding gun owners in Virginia. Based on your leadership on Second Amendment issues in the Virginia Legislature, you have earned the highest attainable rating, an A+…
As a member of the Virginia House of Delegates, you have been a leader on expanding the Second Amendment protections for Virginians. We are grateful that you sponsored and voted for “Constitutional Carry” legislation… We also appreciate your support for Right-to-Carry reciprocity legislation…”
Ben Cline offered the following comment:
“I am honored and humbled by the NRA-PVF endorsement. I have worked tirelessly in the Virginia General Assembly to protect and expand 2nd Amendment Rights, and I will work just as hard for those rights in Washington.
Ben Franklin said, “Well done is better than well said.” I have not only talked the talk, but walked the walk. I carried “Constitutional Carry” legislation and supported “Right-to-Carry” legislation which expanded law abiding citizens to carry their firearms. I passed a law which removed the requirement to fingerprint concealed carry permit holders. I also have worked to protect gun owner’s property rights by voting for a law which allowed property owners to hunt on their property on Sundays. As the Chairman of the Police, Public Safety, and Militia Committee, I killed every single anti-gun measure pushed by the left this past legislative session.
These are the results the 6th District needs from their next Congressman, and with the NRA-PVF’s support – along with the support of the Delegates to the 6th District convention and voters in the 6th District, I will carry on this fight in Washington, D.C.”
