CHICAGO, IL --(Ammoland.com)- The ISRA-FEDPac is pleased to announce its list of candidate endorsements and candidate preferences for the upcoming general election.

The ISRA-FEDPac has endorsed the team of Gov. Mitt Romney and Rep. Paul Ryan over the Obama/Biden team. Illinois firearm owners have first hand experience with Obama’s disdain for the right to keep and bear arms. Thus, Illinois firearm owners know full well that Obama is not the best choice for our nation’s chief executive.

In the 2nd Congressional District, the ISRA-FEDPac has expressed its preference for Mr. Brian Woodworth over incumbent Jessie Jackson, Jr. Although Congressman Jackson is himself an avid gun owner, it is not certain that he will act in the best interests of his fellow lawful firearm owners. Furthermore, if Jackson is re-elected and steps down due to his health problems, it is highly likely that he will be replaced by someone less friendly to lawful firearm owners than is Rep. Jackson.

In the 6th Congressional District race, Rep. Peter Roskam has earned the ISRA-FEDPac endorsement in light of his solid record of respect for the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

In the 8th Congressional District, Rep. Joe Walsh receives the ISRA-FEDPac endorsement in light of his outstanding record on firearm rights issues. Although Walsh’s opponent, Tammy Duckworth, is part of a growing list of war heroes, that status does not grant her license to pick and choose which parts of our Constitution she will defend and those she will not. Duckworth’s disrespect for the 2nd Amendment leaves her unsuitable to serve the people of the 8th District.

In the 11th Congressional District, the candidacy of Rep. Judy Biggert is endorsed by the ISRA-FEDPac due to her long record of support for the right to keep and bear arms. Biggert’s opponent, Bill Foster, is weak on firearm rights issues. Furthermore, allegations that Foster slapped his ex-wife around during divorce proceedings are troubling. Gun grabbing and wife beating are not qualities that most citizens would like to see in their Congressional Representative.

In the 12th Congressional District, Jason Plummer is preferred by the ISRA-FEDPac over his opponent.

In the 13th Congressional District, Rodney Davis is preferred by the ISRA-FEDPac over his opponent.

Illinois hunters and sportsmen have been very fortunate to have had some great friends in Congress there to preserve and protect our outdoor traditions. It is with great pleasure that the ISRA-FEDPac announces its endorsement of Randy Hultgren (IL-14), John Shimkus (IL-15), Adam Kinzinger (IL-16), Bobby Schilling (IL-17) and Aaron Schock (IL-18).

The ISRA-FEDPac wishes all of its endorsed and preferred candidates the best of luck on November 6th and encourages all hunters and sportsmen to get out and exercise their most important right – the right to choose who represents their interests in the halls of government.

The ISRA-FEDPac is a political action committee affiliated with the Illinois State Rifle Association. Donations to the ISRA-FEDPac are not tax-deductible. The ISRA-FEDPac is not authorized by any candidate or campaign committee.
