The Gun Owners of America Political Victory Fund announced its endorsement of Allen Quist for Congress in Minnesota's First Congressional District.
"I am honored to receive the endorsement of the Gun Owners of America," Allen Quist stated. "The GOA is a group that is tireless in its work to educate and inform Americans about state and federal actions that threaten the 2nd amendment freedoms of us all. Their calls to action are well-informed and effective."
Tim Macy, Vice Chairman of GOA, stated, "On behalf of GOA, I encourage you to stand with Allen Quist for Congress." He went on to say, "The choice for gun owners and sportsmen in Minnesota's First Congressional District is clear. Allen Quist is a rock-solid Second Amendment supporter who will always stand up for your gun rights."
In announcing its endorsement, the GOA highlighted Quist's A ratings on gun rights issues in his three terms in the state legislature.
Mr. Macy went on to say, "Allen, an author who speaks frequently on constitutional issues, understands that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights place limitations on the government -- not on "We the People.' Unlike the incumbent representative, Allen Quist will consistently fight to protect the Second Amendment in Washington."
"His opponent in this race, Tim Walz," the press release stated, "claims to support gun rights but his record tells a different story."
