National Rifle Association Endorses Scott Bedke to be Idaho’s Next Lieutenant Governor

Boise, IDAHO – America’s premier defender of the Second Amendment, the National Rifle Association (NRA), is proudly announcing its endorsement of Scott Bedke to become Idaho’s next Lieutenant Governor. In addition to the endorsement, the NRA awarded Bedke with an “A+” rating for his strong support of legislation that protects the right to bear arms is protected in Idaho. 

“A gentleman rancher and a statesman, Speaker Scott Bedke has long demonstrated his steadfast devotion to protecting the Second Amendment rights of all law-abiding Idahoans. His dedication to the right to keep and bear arms has earned him an “A+” rating from the NRA and our endorsement in his campaign for Lt. Gov. in the upcoming Republican Primary election,” said NRA Idaho State Director Aoibheann Cline.

Under Bedke’s conservative leadership, lawmakers have passed meaningful legislation to bolster the Second Amendment rights of all Idahoans. In 2022, the NRA highlighted Bedke’s support of legislation that ensures Idahoans have access to firearms, ammunition, and shooting ranges during declared states of emergencies. 

“Our forefathers established that our right to bear arms shall not be infringed. As a fourth generation Idaho rancher, that is the foundation of my belief on gun rights, and the reason for my strong voting record, as Speaker, to protect those rights,” said Bedke. “I will continue fighting to protect our Second Amendment rights as Idaho’s next Lieutenant Governor, and I thank the NRA for its endorsement.”
