Lee Bright Gets Pro-Gun Nod



Upstate Senator Lee Bright picked up the second significant national endorsement in less than a week Wednesday – this one from Gun Rights Across America.

“Gun Rights Across America stands for no compromise concerning our Second Amendment rights,” said the group in their endorsement statement. “We are proud to endorse state Senator Lee Bright, due to his unwavering and constitutional stance on Second Amendment liberties. Senator Bright would be a valuable asset in the US Senate and we fully support his candidacy.”

Lee Bright enthusiastically embraced the announcement, stating that “this is a great endorsement, not just of our campaign, but of everything we stand for. Gun Rights Across America understands that all our liberties are under attack from the growing cancer of Obama-Reid government, and that Lindsey Graham is part of that problem. They see what I stand for, and they see Senator Graham in a staged photo shoot, and they have made the right choice.”

Last week, the Bright Campaign was boosted by the endorsement of the National Republican Liberty Caucus, the group that helped launch the campaigns of challengers to the Republican establishment named Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. This second national endorsement in just a few days demonstrates Bright’s ability to bring conservatives together to unseat Graham and challenge the Obama agenda.
