Statement on NRA’s Endorsement of Rubio

Posted

In response to the National Rifle Association’s endorsement of Marco Rubio, FDP Chair Allison Tant issued the following statement: 

“It’s hardly surprising that the NRA would back Marco Rubio, who, after claiming the shooting in Orlando changed his mind on public service, voted against commonsense gun safety measures backed by more than 8 in 10 Floridians. The NRA knows Rubio can be counted on to look out for the gun lobby no matter what his constituents think. Unfortunately for Rubio, the people of Florida have had enough with the NRA’s insistence that nothing can be done to prevent gun violence.”
