James Grant’s campaign for the open Florida House seat in District 47 continued to build momentum today when the National Rifle Association and Unified Sportsmen of Florida gave James an A+ rating and endorsed his candidacy. When speaking of the endorsement, Marion Hammer, Past President of the National Rifle Association and Executive Director of Unified Sportsmen of Florida said,
“We are urging our members, and all citizens who support the Constitution and Bill of Rights, to put freedom first and work to help elect James Grant to the Florida House of Representatives where he will protect our strong tradition of freedom, core issues, and values.”
In response to the NRA and USF endorsement and A+ rating, James Grant said,
“To have the endorsement of two groups who wholeheartedly believe in the Constitution is tremendously humbling. This endorsement is not just about the right to bear arms. It is about an absolute belief in God-given and Constitutionally protected freedoms. I ultimately decided to get in this race because I believe that we are living in some of the most politically defining times in our State and Nation’s history. Whether we continue down the path of government expansion at the sake of individual liberties or return to the principles that made us the freest and most prosperous land on earth is entirely up to us.”
The NRA’s endorsement adds to the momentum that continues to build for the James Grant campaign. In recent weeks, Grant has been endorsed by the Florida Right to Life PAC, Police Benevolent Association, Tampa Bay Builders Association, and former opponent Rich Reidy, among others.
