Following major endorsements earlier this week from former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, National Rifle Association and Texas State Rifle Association, today Senator Ken Paxton was endorsed by Gun Owners of America in the upcoming race for Attorney General in Texas. Early voting runs from May 19-23 with the runoff election on May 27.

“Gun owners have a true friend in Ken Paxton,” GOA’s Tim Macy wrote in a letter to supporters. “As Attorney General, Ken Paxton will be an ardent and faithful defender of the Second Amendment, and will build on General Abbott’s strong record of protecting our constitutional rights.  While the anti-self-defense crowd, led by Michael Bloomberg, tries to take away your right to carry a firearm, Ken understands that firearms are ‘the people’s liberty teeth’ and that gun control laws – like gun free zones and gun bans – actually do great harm by disarming law-abiding citizens.

“I know Ken Paxton will always stand up for my rights and yours.  But first we must stand with Ken in this election,” Macy went on to say. “Gun Owners of America Political Victory Fund is proud to support Ken Paxton for Attorney General in the May runoff election, and we encourage all Texans to do the same.”
