Dear SCOPE Member,
Yesterday, we sent you an alert to contact GOP gubernatorial candidate Marc Molinaro, to state your opposition to Julie Killian as his running mate for Lt. Governor. Within two to three hours of posting the alert, Molinaro was on the phone to me and that's a credit to you. I have always expressed that the most important key to our success is you and yesterday we saw how true that is.
During our phone conversation, I expressed to him our opposition to Julie Killian as his Lt. Governor. He acknowledged our concerns but assured me that he continues to support the 2nd Amendment and more specifically repeal of the SAFE Act. He also assured me that Killian is in full support of his agenda, including his positions on the 2nd Amendment, and his opposition to the SAFE Act. He also said Killian would soon be making a public statement affirming her support of Molinaro on those issues.
That said, I would have preferred that Killian was replaced on the ticket and I said that to Molinaro, but unfortunately, we're not going to get that. He did though, assure me that gun owners will have a friend in the governor's mansion if he's elected. His history would support his reassurances, and of all the candidates out there he does present us the best chance to impact the SAFE Act.
Finally, Molinaro’s call yesterday is an indication of how important Molinaro thinks gun owners will be in this election. He also knows you’re paying attention. Those are important points to remember as we move towards November.
Thank you again for your support. Let’s build on our achievement and work toward success on November 6th.
