CHARLESTON, W.Va., April 20, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Rifle Association has endorsed Sen. Jeff Kessler in the race for the Democratic nomination for governor of West Virginia. Kessler is the only statewide candidate running in the May primary to be awarded a grade of A+ by the NRA.
"I always have protected the rights of responsible gun owners," he said. "West Virginia has a proud tradition of outdoor sportsmanship. As governor, I will continue to support West Virginians' Second Amendment rights."
The NRA considers the A+ grade to be an indication of long-standing support for sportsmen and law-abiding gun owners in West Virginia and is well deserved in Kessler's case.
