On Wednesday, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund and the United Sportsmen of Florida (USF) endorsed Rick Scott, the Republican candidate in the gubernatorial race, citing his support of the Second Amendment.

“We sincerely appreciate your support of Second Amendment, self-defense, and anti-crime issues,” wrote Marion Hammer, past president of the NRA and executive director of the USF, to Scott. “Your position on pro-sportsmen, pro-Second Amendment, and pro-freedom issues has earned you our endorsement and our gratitude.”

The NRA gave Scott an “A” grade and the USF rated the candidate as “pro-gun.” Scott had received an “A” grade from the NRA during his hotly contested primary contest for the Republican gubernatorial nomination.

In response to the endorsement, Scott said, “I am pleased to once again have the support of the NRA in this campaign. As a lifelong firearms enthusiast and hunter, I am glad that the NRA has chosen to endorse me. As governor, I will work tirelessly to ensure that Floridians’ Second Amendment rights are protected.”
