NRA Endorses E.W. Jackson for Lieutenant Governor
NRA Emphasizes Ralph Northams D Rating
E.W. Jackson, Republican nominee for Lieutenant Governor in Virginia has received the endorsement of the National Rifle Association (NRA) after receiving a rating of AQ for his pro gun response on our candidate questionnaire.
The NRA is committed to protecting our Second Amendment freedoms and hunting heritage, and we support candidates who share those same values, said Chris W. Cox, chairman of NRA-PVF. Because of his stated support of our rights on his NRA questionnaire, E.W. Jackson has received an AQ rating and endorsement from the NRA-PVF. In contrast, his opponent Ralph Northam is D rated by the NRA-PVF.
Jackson proudly accepted the endorsement and stated that, The National Rifle Associations efforts on behalf of law-abiding gun owners across America have been a bulwark against those who seek to infringe upon our citizens 2nd Amendment rights. I look forward to working with the NRA on the campaign trail and after my election this November.
Jackson described the difference between him and his opponent, Democrat Ralph Northam. There could not be a sharper contrast between myself and my opponent on this issue. Ralph Northams D rating from the NRA shows clearly that he has little respect for the 2nd Amendment and the Constitutional freedoms that he has sworn an oath to defend. For those that cherish their constitutional rights, a vote for me in November is critical. As Lieutenant Governor, I will boldly advocate for the 2nd Amendment at every opportunity.
EW Jackson is the real deal, a vigilant protector of the constitution. Please consider helping him in his fight:
You won’t believe the assault our Virginia candidates are taking from leftist groups - CA environmentalist billionaires and Howard Dean’s Liberal PAC. We can’t fight their liberal lies without money.
Bumping for the good guy.
That’s awesome but ... get back to me when ANY poll puts the GOP ticket above 38%. Even Rasmussen polled them at 36% he other day. That crook Mcauliffe is around 45% and adding voters. I don’t know what the answer is, but this is rocketing toward a disaster. While I love the NRA endorsement, I don’t see that as moving anyone who doesn’t already support the GOP.
I dunno. Been a good number of years since I lived in VA and practiced, but I have some friends still there that routinely bemoan it turning blue.
No doubt the polls are not where we want them, but the fight is still on. It ain’t over till it’s over, and we aren’t waving the white flag. Our ground game is excellent, we are outperforming the D’s with voter contacts.
This is the first fight of the mid-terms, don’t let anyone think this isn’t a precursor to 2014 and implementing Hillary in 2016.
Do whatever you have to do to get him elected.
Working day and night! Thanks.
You have friends up here in PA. Let us know what you need.
Spread the word that the fight is happening in Va right now, all 3 of our statewide candidates are constitutional conservatives.

Money, time and prayers are our best hope. If you live close enough to Va and want to come help canvas, contact me thru messaging and I can get you hooked up in whatever town you are near. If you can send messages to local Tea Party groups - include the candidates links. Mention this fight in Va when you speak to like minded folks.
It’s unbelievable the money pouring in from every leftist nitwit PAC and group. We are in the fight of our lives and the stakes couldn’t be higher.
Will do. I will put word out through the various gunny groups up here, and we will see what kind of support we can get to you.
Great! and thank you.
What the NRA (or any) endorsement does is, it gives members a reason to get out and vote. Endorsements also usually provide some $ from the organizations and their members, as well as a volunteer base that’s made available to the endorsed candidate.
I voted for him in the 3rd and 4th rounds of the RPV Convention. Republican “moderates” are doing everything they can to sabotage his campaign and that of Ken Cuccinelli. Remember that next time they ask for your support for another Romney or McCain.
