Gun Owners Of America Endorses Matt Bevin


Republican Matt Bevin has been endorsed by the Gun Owners of America, Bevin’s Kentucky Senate campaign announced Thursday.  

The Gun Owners of America is a pro-gun lobby that falls farther to the right than the National Rifle Association. According to Bevin’s campaign, the lobby said “Matt Bevin will not be a follower, but a leader who is willing to uncompromisingly fight for our liberties.”

“This is what gun owners are looking for nationwide; and it’s what Kentuckians are looking for in their state,” the campaign said. 

The endorsement comes less than a week after Bevin received the endorsement of the Senate Conservatives Fund, a well-funded organization that has been very critical of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who Bevin hopes to unseat in the Republican primary.
