The NRA Political Victory Fund (PVF) has endorsed incumbent 8th District Delegate Morgan Griffith (R-Salem) in his re-election campaign.

Griffith is in his 8th term as Delegate for the 8th District. He is being challenged by Democrat Carter Turner.

According to the Virginia Shooting Sports Association Griffith has been a good friend to law abiding gun owners – supporting repeal of the ban on carrying concealed in restaurants like Applebees, Olive Garden, and other restaurants that serve alcohol in addition to food. He was also an opponent of requiring background checks on private sale of firearms at gun shows. He has supported every pro-rights bill that has come before the House and opposed all of the anti-rights bills.

Griffith said after the the endorsement:

This endorsement recognizes my consistent record in support of the rights of law-abiding gun owners during my sixteen years in the General Assembly

As you know, not only did the NRA give Morgan Griffith an A+ and it’s endorsement but they took the rather unusual step of giving Morgan’s opponent a D-. This was an especially brutal blow to his campaign after he touted his being a lifelong sportsman and made the NRA endorsement a major issue in the campaign.

No response from the Turner campaign regarding his press release on NRA questionaire.

If that was a question to me, the answer is No. We have seen no response from Turner regarding his bizarre press release. I’ll tell you this much though, the NRA is NOT happy about it and that press release is why the NRA took the unusual step of sending the email we posted. My understanding is that the 8th is the only District for which they sent such an email. Turner forced their hand though with his nonsense press release.
