Gun Owners of America Endorses Rick Crawford for Congress

As Endorsements Rack Up Causey Continues to Lie and Hide

Jonesboro – Rick Crawford gained yet another key endorsement in his race for Congress today as the nationally respected 2nd amendment advocacy group Gun Owners for America threw their support behind his run. The group cited Crawford’s strong support of the 2nd amendment and Chad Causey’s lack of response as reason for endorsing.

Crawford stated “I am honored to have the support so many folks that share my belief in our 2nd amendment rights.  Our right to bear arms is something that many liberals like Nancy Pelosi would like to see taken away and it is imperative that we have leaders in Washington that are willing to stand up and fight her attempts to infringe on our rights”.

This endorsement comes on the heels of major endorsements from the National Right to Life PAC, several state and national Veterans groups and public polling showing Crawford leading by double digits.

“This endorsement should again make Chad Causey understand that you can’t say one thing here and do another in DC. It’s sad that he didn’t even take the time to address this group of committed gun rights advocates. It begs the question, is Chad Causey to chicken or too liberal to represent Arkansas in Congress?” added Campaign Spokesmen Ted Prill.

Gun Owners of America Political Victory Fund is proud to endorse Rick Crawford for Congress in Arkansas’ First Congressional District.

Rick earned an “A” rating from Gun Owners of America, based on his perfect score on the GOA candidate survey and his unwavering commitment to protecting the right to keep and bear arms.

His opponent, a staffer for the retiring Congressman, did not even return the GOA survey even though he was given the opportunity twice in the past few months! This is usually a sign that the candidate is hiding anti-gun views.

Furthermore, the first vote that Rick Crawford’s Democrat opponent would cast would be for Nancy Pelosi for Speaker of the House, a San Francisco liberal who does not represent the values of Arkansans.

Gun owners and sportsmen from Arkansas expect their elected representatives to safeguard their constitutional liberties, and not to vote for an ever expanding federal government.

Thomas Jefferson urged that politicians be “[bound] down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

That is just what people like Rick Crawford intend to do. He will be part of a team of candidates determined to rein in the federal government and stop the Obama-Pelosi socialist, anti-Second Amendment agenda.

Gun Owners of America urges all gun owners and sportsmen in the district to help Rick Crawford get elected in November. If you can volunteer your time, put out a yard sign, or make a contribution, please visit today.

And most importantly, make sure that you and all of your pro-gun family members and friends in the First Congressional District vote for Rick Crawford on Election Day.
