Washington, DC –-(Ammoland.com)- Gun owners achieved a big win in Colorado during Tuesday’s elections, but also suffered a narrow loss in Mississippi.
In Colorado’s 4th Congressional District, GOA-endorsed candidate Ken Buck won his primary by an astounding 20 points.
This is great news for gun owners across the country.
Gun Owners of America doesn’t look for candidates who will merely vote right, but do nothing else. We look for strong leadership qualities and the willingness to stand up to the powerful elite in Washington D.C., and Ken Buck is that type of person.
In Mississippi, we suffered a narrow defeat in the race for U.S. Senate, with incumbent Thad Cochran garnering 50.8% of the vote to GOA-supported Chris McDaniel’s 49.2%.
Anti-gun billionaire activist Michael Bloomberg dumped $250,000 into the state to defeat McDaniel. Bloomberg has pledged to spend $50 million to push his radical gun control agenda, and GOA will continue to fight him at every turn.
Across the country, GOA supports candidates who stand 100% for your Second Amendment rights, and we thank the members and supporters who helped make Tuesday’s win possible.
Again, thank you for your support of the Second Amendment.
