HIGHTSTOWN, N.J., June 2, 2014 – America’s leading gun-rights organization, the National Rifle Association, has awarded an “AQ” rating to Murray Sabrin in his quest for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Cory Booker.

“I’m proud to receive this prestigious rating,” Sabrin said.”I appreciate the support of New Jersey gun owners, and I will do my utmost to justify it by standing firm for the rights of gun owners throughout America to keep and bear arms.”

An “AQ” rating is given to a pro-gun candidate based solely on the candidate's responses to the NRA-PVF Candidate Questionnaire and who does not have a voting record on Second Amendment issues.

Sabrin has made gun rights a critical issue in his campaign for the nomination together with a return to letting the free-enterprise system spur economic growth, limiting the size and reach of government, pushing back against governmental encroachment on our civil liberties and keeping America out of unnecessary foreign entanglements where no vital national interests are at stake.

He is also the only candidate for the nomination to have raised enough money to make a credible run against Booker, whose bankroll admittedly dwarfs all others in the race. As of late May, he had 7.5 times the amount of cash on hand as the rest of the GOP field combined.

“It’s important that we put our best foot and best candidate forward in the run up to November,” Sabrin said. “With my strong, decades-long record of activism and my fingertip-knowledge understanding of economics and the federal budget together with my vigilant defense of our Constitution, including the Second Amendment, I’m the only candidate who fills the bill.”

New Jersey voters will decide the matter on June 3 when they go to the polls to decide who will advance to the general election, Sabrin or one of his opponents.
