VCDL Endorses Bolling and Cuccinelli

The Virginia Civil Defense League (VCDL) just issued their endorsements for the RPV 2009 State Convention. They endorsed Bill Bolling for Lieutenant Governor, and Ken Cuccinelli for Attorney General. While these two men are traditionally thought of as social conservatives, they have proven themselves over their careers as people who fight for our second amendment rights. The VCDL did not endrose Bob McDonnell simply because he is not in a nomination contest at the convention.

The Republican Party is holding a Convention on May 29-30, 2009, to select
candidates to run for Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General in the General
Election. VCDL-PAC is endorsing a candidate for each of these positions at the
Republican Convention:

LT. GOVERNOR: William T. "Bill" Bolling. This endorsement is based on the
excellent record Lt Governor Bolling established representing the interests of
Virginia gun owners during his career in the Virginia General Assembly, as well
as his forthright and unequivocal 100% pro-gunanswers to the VCDL Candidate
Survey. The Bolling campaign website is:

ATTORNEY GENERAL: Kenneth T. "Ken" Cuccinelli, II. Despite being from
Northern Virginia, Senator Cuccinelli has been among the stalwart leaders in
protecting the 2nd Amendment in the Virginia State Senate year after year –-
even when he is viciously attacked for such stands in his home district. In
addition, he has answered the VCDL candidate survey strongly pro-gun. Senator
Cuccinelli has supported us in very tough circumstances, now here’s your chance
to return the favor. The Cuccinelli campaign website is:

This Convention provides supporters of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms
(RKBA) in Virginia the opportunity to select pro-gun candidates for the
Republican Party. Fewer than 5,000 activists will decide the nominations, so
those who care about the issues will make all the difference. I highly
encourage you to register as a Delegate at the Republican Convention to ensure
that the RKBA is strongly represented.

A link to the Convention filing deadlines and forms is:

Contact your family, friends, and fellow 2nd Amendment activists and get
