Congressman Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement Tuesday on building conservative support for his campaign after a pair of major endorsements. McHenry was endorsed by President Donald Trump on Friday and announced the endorsement of the National Rifle Association (NRA) on Tuesday.
“I am honored and grateful to have the support of President Trump and the NRA and look forward to continuing to fight alongside our president to cut taxes, create jobs, build the wall, protect the Second Amendment and deliver conservative results for hardworking North Carolina families,” McHenry said. “President Trump and I are committed to keeping America great and preventing Democratic elites from destroying our economy with their radical, socialist agenda.”
President Trump endorsed McHenry in a Tweet sent on Friday.

The NRA’s Political Victory Fund endorsed McHenry on Tuesday, giving the North Carolina congressman an A-rating for his dedicated leadership in support of Second Amendment rights.
In addition to President Trump and the NRA, McHenry has been endorsed by fellow North Carolina conservative leader Congresswoman Virginia Foxx.
The Republican primary election for the 10th congressional district is on March 3.
Patrick is fighting for you in Washington to protect your Second Amendment rights, work for small businesses in our District and across the nation, and bring your voice to Congress.
