U.S. Senate race endorsements



The National Defense PAC endorsed LeRoy Collins in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate.

"He’s served our country in America’s armed forces, he knows the hardships and dangers first hand, and he’s committed to keeping the promises made to our veterans when they first agreed to risk their lives to face America’s enemies," National Defense PAC Chairman, Rear Admiral [Ret.] James J. Carey said.

The National Rifle Association and Unified Sportsmen of Florida endorsed opponent Katherine Harris.

"You [have] been consistently strong in support of Second Amendment and self-defense issues and we sincerely appreciate your solid pro-sportsmen, pro-Second Amendment, pro-freedom record.  Your outstanding and unblemished record on issues important to firearms owners and sportsmen demonstrates undeniable dedication to freedom and the Bill of Rights," said Marion Hammer, NRA Past President and current Executive Director of Unified Sportsmen of Florida.
