Illinois Gun Owners Can Rely On Candidates Dillard And Sandack To Protect Gun Rights

SPRINGFIELD, Ill., March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was released today by the ISRA Political Victory Fund (ISRA-PVF):

Illinois gun owners could not have better friends in Bill Brady, Kirk Dillard, and Dan Rutherford.  Each of the three has proven himself time and time again to be a solid supporter of the individual right to keep and bear arms.  Unfortunately, this primary election season has forced the ISRA-PVF to choose one of its three good friends for endorsement in the Republican gubernatorial primary.  The ISRA-PVF 2014 primary endorsement goes to Senator Kirk Dillard.  By no means is Senator Dillard any bigger of a supporter of gun rights than Senator Brady or Treasurer Rutherford.  However, we believe that Senator Dillard's broader appeal among voters will push him past Gov. Pat Quinn in the general election.

A fourth candidate in the primary, Bruce Rauner, was found to be unsuitable for endorsement due to his campaign's failure to address issues important to law-abiding Illinois firearm owners.  Whereas candidates Brady, Dillard and Rutherford addressed thousands of gun owners at the Illinois Gun Owners' Lobby Day (IGOLD) in Springfield earlier this month, Rauner chose to blow the event off – not even bothering to send a staffer to address the IGOLD crowd.  In the opinion of the ISRA-PVF, Bruce Rauner offers little to Illinois hunters and sportsmen.

In the 37th House District Republican primary race, the ISRA-PVF endorses Margo McDermed.
In the 42nd House District Republican primary race, the ISRA-PVF endorses Jeanne Ives.
In the 48th House District Republican primary race, the ISRA-PVF endorses Sandra Pihos.
In the 51st House District Republican primary race, the ISRA-PVF endorses Ed Sullivan, Jr.
In the 81st House District Republican primary race, the ISRA-PVF endorses Ron Sandack.
In the 94th House District Republican primary race, the ISRA-PVF endorses Randy Frese.
In the 96th House District Democrat primary race, the ISRA-PVF endorses Sue Scherer.
In the 115th House District Republican primary race, the ISRA-PVF endorses Terri Bryant.

The ISRA-PVF is a political action committee affiliated with the Illinois State Rifle Association.  A copy of the committee report is on file with the Illinois State Board of Elections, Springfield, Illinois
