Casey Cagle, the leading conservative Republican for governor, is the only candidate in the governor’s race to have earned the endorsement of the National Rifle Association.
“I’m honored and excited to have the NRA’s support because its cause is one that I share and that I have fought for,” said Cagle. “I’m a lifetime member of the NRA, and I’m proud of my unwavering record for the Second Amendment. Like the NRA, I believe the framers of the Constitution meant what they said when they wrote that the right to bear arms shall not be infringed.”
Cagle has earned an A+ rating from the NRA every year he has served in elected office, and has previously been endorsed by the organization.
“Gun ownership is a right that Georgians take seriously, and the NRA endorsement is the gold standard in our state,” Cagle said. “I’m an avid outdoorsman, and I taught all three of my boys how to hunt, shoot and respect firearms. That’s an American legacy that I want to see handed down to my grandchildren and to the generations that follow them.”
