    NRA: Freedom Prevails Across the Country; George Bush Re-Elected, Daschle Defeated; Overwhelming 95% Success Rate Nationwide

    Fairfax, VA—The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) earned a 95% success rate of endorsed congressional candidates winning their races. The Association also won two major battles over anti-hunting initiatives, as voters in Alaska and Maine rejected ballot issues banning bear hunting methods.



    Of the 251 candidates endorsed by NRA for the U.S. House of Representatives, 241 candidates won. 14 of the 18 NRA-endorsed U.S. Senate candidates won their races.



    “This election was crucial for the Second Amendment,” said NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre. “The NRA stands for freedom, our members are defenders of freedom and we are proud to see that gun owners across the country came out and voted for freedom.



    “I really hope that national Democratic leaders stop taking this party off the cliff and look at the heartland and the wreckage this issue has caused. They have to start putting up candidates who support gun rights and have a voting record to match their photo-ops,” added LaPierre.



    The election outcome continues a strong winning streak for NRA-PVF endorsed candidates. In 2000, NRA had an 85% success rate, followed by an 89% success rate in 2002. NRA’s impressive numbers illustrate the strength of gun owners as a voting bloc each election cycle.



    “We’ve seen a real political seat change in this country since Al Gore’s defeat in 2000,” added Chris W. Cox, NRA’s chief lobbyist. “A number of anti-gun candidates attempted to hide their gun-control agendas to get elected. Fortunately, savvy gun owners saw through misleading campaign tactics and voted for true pro-gun candidates election year,” concluded Cox. Chris W. Cox serves as Chairman of NRA - PVF.



    Top NRA Senate winners are John Thune (SD), Mel Martinez (FL), Jim DeMint (SC), Johnny Isakson (GA), Richard Burr (NC), David Vitter (LA), Tom Coburn (OK), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Jim Bunning (KY) and Arlen Specter (PA).



    Newly-elected pro-gun freshman in the House of Representatives include John Salazar (CO-3), Connie Mack (FL-14), Tom Price (GA-8), Mike Sodrel (IN-9), Geoff Davis (KY-4), Jeff Fortenberry (NE-1), Virginia Foxx (NC-5), Patrick McHenry (NC-10), Dan Boren (OK-2), Mike Fitzpatrick (PA-8), Charlie Dent (PA-15), Bob Inglis (SC-4), Louie Gohmert (TX-1), Ted Poe (TX-2), Mike McCaul (TX-10), Mike Conaway (TX-11), Kenny Marchant (TX-24), Henry Cuellar (TX-28), Thelma Drake (VA-2), and Cathy McMorris (WA-5).



    Pro-gun incumbent Representatives re-elected are Rick Renzi (AZ-1), John Porter (NV-3), Bob Beauprez (CO-7), Pete Sessions (TX-32), Sam Graves (MO-6), Mark Kennedy (MN-6), Lee Terry (NE-2), Jim Gerlach (PA-6), Katherine Harris (FL-13), Jim Marshall-D (GA-3), John Hostettler (IN-8), Cathy McMorris (WA-5), and Shelley Moore Capito (WV-2).

    this has been a trend since 1994. Bill Clinton and his stupid assault weapon ban KILLED the anti-gun movement. Thanks Bill!

    its not just the gun issue thats doing that, its the whole socialist agenda. America, outside of the major urban areas completely rejects the socialist agenda.

    the democrats refuse to admit this, and continue to move leftward, and continue to lose. Hopefully they will be stupid enough to run Hillary in 2008 so they lose BIG again. Can you say SUPERMAJORITY?

    anyhow, having one party dominate the country is not the best thing. It would be nice if the democrats self destructed and its place was taken by the Libertarians or something.

    Of course, that would never happen, the urban elitists will continue to keep that awful socialist party alive.

    I'd love to see the libertarians have a bigger place in the spotlight.

    In a libertarian vs republican election, everybody wins.

    I'd like to see more third parties running for election since I like variety.
