ANCHORAGE, Sept. 26, 2018 — This week, gubernatorial candidate Mike Dunleavy received the coveted endorsement of the National Rifle Association (NRA). Dunleavy’s staunch record of defending the rights of Alaska’s law-abiding gun owners made him the only clear choice for members of the NRA in this year’s race for governor.

“It’s an honor to be endorsed by the nation’s foremost defender of our Second Amendment rights,” said Dunleavy. “As a lifelong member of the NRA, and as a father, I value the organization’s work in educating Alaskans on gun safety, training, and marksmanship.”

With the highest rate of gun ownership in the country, Alaska is home to thousands of law-abiding residents who use firearms for hunting, sport shooting, and defending their lives and property.

“As governor, Alaskans can be confident I will always support and defend the individual right to keep and bear arms – a right enshrined in our federal and state constitutions,” said Dunleavy.

Mike Dunleavy is the only candidate for governor of Alaska receiving the NRA’s endorsement.
