Florida Candidate Loses Endorsement for Supporting Gun Control

FAIRFAX, Va. — The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) has recently updated the candidate ratings for Florida’s 6th Congressional District.

The previous endorsement for Fred Costello has been rescinded and his rating has been changed from an “A” to a “?” due to his recent statements in support of Florida’s gun control bill, SB 7026.

This bill prohibits law-abiding adults aged 18 to 21 from purchasing firearms and imposes a three-day waiting period on the purchase of rifles and shotguns.

The updated ratings for Florida’s 6th Congressional District can be found here.
