James Comer for Congress

TOMPKINSVILLE, KY - (Fri 8 Nov 2016) - James Comer announced today that the National Rifle Association (NRA) has endorsed his campaign for Congress in Kentucky's First Congressional District. Comer, who also received an A rating from the NRA, is a staunch supporter of the 2nd Amendment. He is running to replace retiring Congressman Ed Whitfield in the May 17, 2016 Republican primary.

"As an avid sportsman and strong defender of the Constitution, I'm honored to receive the NRA endorsement. The NRA endorsement is the single biggest and most coveted endorsement in the entire Congressional race, and it will ensure that my overwhelming campaign momentum continues through May 17."

In their letter of endorsement, Chris Cox, the chairman of the NRA's Political Victory Fund, noted that Comer is a strong supporter of the Second Amendment and committed to continuing to defend the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens "by opposing the gun control agenda promoted by President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg."

Cox also acknowledged Comer's co-sponsorship in 2012 as a Kentucky State Representative of the Right to Fish and Hunt Act and his support of immunity from prosecution in lawful use of force.

James Comer is a farmer and small business owner in Monroe County. Comer and his wife T.J. have three children and reside in Tompkinsville.
