Huge Endorsement: NRA Backs David Richter for U.S. Congress

1 min read

TOMS RIVER, NJ – The National Rifle Association (NRA) Political Victory Fund announced today that David Richter has received their endorsement in his race for the U.S. House of Representatives in New Jersey’s Third District. Additionally, Richter received an AQ rating, the highest possible rating a non-incumbent candidate can receive. The NRA is the largest coalition of gun owners and defenders of the Second Amendment throughout the country.

In a letter to Richter making the endorsement, Jason Ouimet, Chairman of the NRA-PVF, said, “On behalf of our five million members across the country, the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to endorse your candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives. NRA members and gun owners in the Garden State can rest assured you will vote to protect their constitutional rights in Congress.”

Richter said, “I’m humbled to have received the endorsement of the NRA as a political outsider and first-time candidate. I know, as an NRA member, that the work this organization does on behalf of all gun owners is invaluable to ensuring that our government does not infringe upon our Second Amendment rights.”

“At a point in this campaign when Kate Gibbs is being propped up by never-Trumpers and liberal labor unions, I am proud to have received the support of a truly and unabashedly conservative group like the NRA that is not afraid to stand up for what its members believe in,” Richter added.

Richter is the former CEO of global construction management firm Hill International. During his time at the company, Hill grew from a struggling family business with less than 300 employees into a successful public company with more than 4,300 employees. A lifelong Republican, Richter grew up in and has spent most of his life living and working in the Third District. He earned two bachelor’s degrees and a law degree from Penn as well as master’s degrees from Oxford and Harvard. Richter and his wife Michelle, who have been married for 20 years, are the parents of four daughters.
