Halvorson receives endorsement from Illinois State Rifle Association

Posted by wlpo on October 7, 2010

The Illinois State Rifle Association has Congresswoman Debbie Halvorson’s back.

ISRA Executive Director Richard Pearson announced his group’s endorsement of the Democrat Thursday morning in Ottawa.  Pearson says Halvorson is the “perfect candidate” and “she’s done great things for us.”

Pearson says there were no red flags found with Republican challenger Adam Kinzinger, they just like a proven record.

Both Halvorson and Pearson took the opportunity to pressure the state to pass right-to-carry legislation.  Illinois and Wisconsin are the only states without the gun carrying law on the books.
