ICYMI: Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund Endorses Aaron Ford for Nevada Attorney General
Las Vegas, NV -- Yesterday, Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund announced key endorsements, including Aaron Ford for Nevada Attorney General.
Aaron is one of only seven candidates -- two of whom are Attorney General candidates -- across the country to receive an endorsement from Everytown for Gun Safety Action Fund. The endorsements come with a commitment of spending of up to $10 million in four priority states, including Nevada.
Aaron’s endorsement comes on the heels of a poll conducted by the Reno Gazette-Journal and Suffolk University reporting that about three-quarters of voters favor enforcing the universal background check initiative passed by voters in 2016. Aaron has been a strong proponent of universal background checks and other common-sense gun safety measures, such as the bill he passed to prevent domestic abusers from acquiring guns.
The Republican candidate for Attorney General, Wes Duncan, has refused to support the implementation of the voter-approved background check initiative. In his one term in the Nevada Assembly, Duncan voted against universal background checks.
