State Representative Charles Perry has received a number of endorsements in his re-election bid for House District 83.

On Tuesday, Perry was formally endorsed by the National Rifle Association PFV and Texas State Rifle Association. Rep. Perry is a lifelong member of both organizations.

"The 2nd Amendment is in the Constitution and I will continue to fight to protect that right," said Perry. "The Obama Administration's attack on our 2nd Amendment rights are unprecedented.  You can count on me to not back down and protect your rights from the state capitol."

Last week, Perry was also endorsed by the Texas Right to Life Political Action Committee. Texas Right to Life is the largest pro-life group in the state.

“Texas Right to Life has enjoyed working alongside Representative Perry on the sanctity of human life.  We are proud to again endorse his re-election campaign for State House, and we know that Representative Perry represents the citizens of District 83 well, and additionally the Pro-Life majority of Texans,” said Dr. Joseph Graham, President of Texas Right to Life.

Charles Perry is being challenged by Steve Massengale in next month’s Republican Primary for HD 83.
