Steube was basically the only State Senator that stood up for us. I think even McThag approves ( reluctantly ) .
NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION ENDORSES STEUBE FOR U.S. CONGRESS
Sarasota, FL – Today the National Rifle Association announced their endorsement of Senator Greg Steube’s campaign for Congress.
“On behalf of our six million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse your candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives in the August 28, 2018, Republican primary for the 17th Congressional District of Florida,” said NRA spokesperson Chris Cox.
The letter continued, “Thank you for standing strong for freedom and defending NRA members and law-abiding gun owners in Florida. Based on your leadership on Second Amendment issues in the Florida Legislature, you have earned the highest attainable rating, an “A+”, from NRA-PVF.”
“An “A+” is reserved for a legislator with not only an excellent voting record on all critical NRA issues, but who has also made a vigorous effort to promote and defend the Second Amendment,” read the letter.
The endorsement adds to a growing list of respected Conservatives that have endorsed Steube’s campaign.
“This endorsement unequivocally shows that gun-rights advocates want someone who doesn’t just talk about supporting the 2nd Amendment, but someone who has an actual record of defending our rights when they had the chance to,” said Greg Steube. “I will stand with President Trump in supporting the gun rights of law abiding citizens in this country.”
“I am honored to receive the endorsement of our country’s largest citizen-led group. Conservatives know they have someone they can trust when it comes to defending their Constitutional rights,” continued Steube.
Steube has served as the State Senator for District 23, covering Sarasota County and western Charlotte County since 2016. He previously served as a State Representative for District 73, representing those in Manatee and Sarasota counties from 2010 – 2016. He lives in Sarasota with his wife Jennifer and son, Ethan.
