HOMEWOOD — State Rep. Paul DeMarco has secured the endorsement of the National Rifle Association’s Political Victory Fund for the U.S. Hose District 6 Republican primary.
DeMarco and fellow Republican Gary Palmer will face off in a runoff Tuesday, July 15.
The NRA is a national organization focused on the protection of Second Amendment rights.
“Paul has proven his determination to fight for gun owners and hunters in Alabama,” said NRA-PFV chairman Chris Cox in a news release. “He shares the NRA’s commitment to stand strong against the Obama-Bloomberg gun control agenda in Washington. We urge all NRA members and supporters in Alabama’s 6th Congressional District to vote for Paul DeMarco on July 15.”
In the June 3 primary, DeMarco, after all 219 precincts reported, totaled 30,842 votes, or 33 percent. Palmer totaled 18,627 votes, or 20 percent. Scott Beason managed 14,428 votes, Chad Mathis had 14,400 and Will Brooke totaled 13,076. Tom Vigneulle totaled 2,394 votes and Robert Shattuck managed just 587 votes.
“It’s an honor to be supported by the National Rifle Association,” DeMarco said. “If elected, I’ll be able continue with my strong legislative track record on gun issues with resounding votes in favor of the Second Amendment in Washington. It’s vital that we send a congressman to D.C. who will protect not just the Second Amendment, but all of our conservative Alabama values.”
DeMarco has been a state representative from Homewood. Palmer is the co-founder of the Alabama Policy Institute.
