Rep. Claeys A+ Rated, Endorsed by National Rifle Association

The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) announced today their endorsement and support of Rep. J.R. Claeys (R-Salina) for Reelection to the Kansas House of Representatives.

Rep. Claeys is one of only five Kansas Representatives awarded the A+ rating as an outspoken advocate for Second Amendment rights. He serves on the House Federal & State Affairs Committee where most firearms legislation is introduced for hearings. The NRA describes their A+ rating as reserved for "a legislator with not only an excellent voting record on all critical NRA issues, but who has also made a vigorous effort to promote and defend the Second Amendment."

"I appreciate the support of the National Rifle Association and Kansas sportsmen who recognize my longstanding support of Second Amendment rights," said Claeys. "Our Second Amendment rights are non-negotiable."

Claeys serves the 69th District in Saline County, covering the west side of Salina and the northwest portion of the county.

Claeys is a fifth-generation Kansan, born and raised in Salina. He is a graduate of Salina Catholic Schools and Kansas State University.

Claeys first won election to the Kansas House of Representatives in 2012. He serves on the Federal & State Affairs Committee, the Commerce, Labor & Economic Development Committee and the powerful House Taxation Committee.
