Harrisonburg – Erin Luper, Virginia State Liaison with the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action announced that Delegate Tony Wilt (R-Broadway) received an “A+” rating and the endorsement of the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF).
The NRA is widely recognized as America’s foremost defender of Second Amendment rights and the premier firearms education organization in the world.
“This endorsement is a reflection of Delegate Wilt’s steadfast support on Second Amendment issues,” stated Erin Luper. “Our members will interpret Delegate Wilt’s rating and endorsement as being a solid pro-gun/pro-hunting candidate who is an advocate for the right to keep and bear arms.”
“I appreciate the support of the NRA-PVF,” said Delegate Wilt. “During my time in the General Assembly I have advanced and consistently supported policy that strengthens the rights of law-abiding gun owners. If reelected I will continue to stand firm in support of these rights and against efforts to place unnecessary restrictions on firearms.”
In addition to this endorsement, Delegate Wilt received high marks earlier this year from another prominent pro-Second Amendment organization in the Commonwealth, the Virginia Citizens Defense League (VCDL). VCDL awarded Delegate Wilt a 100% score based on votes taken during the 2017 General Assembly Session.
