The District 12 Senator receives the endorsements of both the
National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund and the Unified
Sportsmen of Florida in his bid for re-election to Senate District 12.
The Dennis Baxley Campaign today announced the endorsement of the National Rifle Association (NRA) Political Victory Fund and Unified Sportsmen of Florida. Baxley, who has a long history as a champion of Second Amendment Rights and is a past recipient of the NRA Defender of Freedom Award, earned a grade of A+ from the NRA and a “Strong Pro-Gun” rating from Unified Sportsmen of Florida. He is seeking re-election to the District 12 seat in the Florida Senate.
“We sincerely appreciate Dennis Baxley’s strong and unyielding support of Second Amendment issues as a member of the Florida Legislature. “ said Marion Hammer, Past President of the National Rifle Association and Executive Director of Unified Sportsmen of Florida. “No other candidate in this race has the background of active, dedicated legislative service that Senator Baxley has demonstrated to advancing the cause of freedom, Second Amendment rights, and protection of Constitutional rights. His support of Second Amendment, self-defense, and anti-crime issues and his pro-sportsmen, pro-freedom record has earned our endorsement and our appreciation.”
Baxley was first elected to the District 12 Senate seat in 2016 after representing District 23 in the Florida House of Representatives. He was the author of the “Stand Your Ground” law, which codifies the right of Florida citizens to defend themselves from attack without fear of prosecution. He served in the Florida House for a total of 13 years, including as Speaker Pro Tem from 2006 to 2007.
“I am proud of my long-standing support of the NRA and Unified Sportsmen of Florida, and of their support for me” said Baxley. “Few things in life are more important than protecting the right of individuals to defend themselves, their loved ones, and their property from those who would do them harm. I look forward to continuing to fight against the erosion of our Second Amendment rights.”
