Republican congressional candidate Mark Amodei announced today that he has been endorsed by the National Rifle Association (NRA.)

"Mark Amodei is a steadfast supporter of freedom. He earned the NRA-PVF endorsement because of his demonstrated support for our rights, including improvements to Nevada's right-to-carry law; preventing gun confiscations during states of emergency; and protecting firearm manufacturers and dealers from bogus lawsuits," said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. "His proven commitment to our Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage make Amodei the best choice for Nevada gun owners in this special election in Nevada's 2nd congressional district."

"This endorsement shows that I fully support the Second Amendment rights of the residents in this district," Amodei said. "As a hunter I understand their concerns and they should know I'm the only candidate in this race who will be an advocate for them. I am the conservative candidate who will be a conservative voice for Nevada families and stand up to Washington's tax and spend culture."
