Rick Berg Gets Endorsement From The National Rifle Association

From the press release:

Fairfax, Va. – The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is endorsing Rick Berg for U.S. Senate in North Dakota.
“Rick Berg has a proven record of defending the Second Amendment,” said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. “Because of his strong support of our rights, Rick Berg has earned an “A” rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF.”

“I am honored to accept the endorsement of the National Rifle Association,” said Berg. “As a hunter and long-time member of the National Rifle Association, North Dakota’s outdoor tradition and legacy are incredibly important to me and my family. I will continue to be a trusted advocate and defender of our Second Amendment freedoms so that future generations of lawful sportsmen and women will have the same opportunities that my son Jack and I enjoy today.”

It’s interesting that the NRA is giving Berg their endorsement this time around. In the 2010 cycle the NRA left a lot of gun rights supporters in North Dakota scratching their heads when they endorsed incumbent Democrat Rep. Earl Pomeroy over Berg despite Pomeroy’s lengthy history of support for invasive federal gun control. Berg, in that race, was clearly the better choice when it comes to protecting gun rights.

And he’s the better choice over Heidi Heitkamp on that issue as well.

    As a Life Member in the NRA for dozens & dozens of years, I am very pleased to see the National Rifle Association endorse Rick Berg.
    Whenever I had contacted Mr. Berg during his tenure as North Dakota Legislator regarding hunting and firearms legislation, he always replied to my emails and voted in the positive for hunting and gun rights as well.
    The NRA has endorsed a fine candidate in Rick Berg, and all sportsmen and sportswomen of North Dakota need to get on board and vote for him, as he will protect our gun rights.
