National Rifle Association gives Wil Cardon top rating
PHOENIX - The National Rifle Association awarded Wil Cardon with an "AQ" grade - the top rating a non-incumbent can receive.
The NRA grades non-incumbent candidates based on their beliefs regarding the Second Amendment. Incumbents are ranked on an A+ - F scale based on their record on the Second Amendment.
Wil received the top possible grade - Congressman Jeff Flake did not.
Wil believes the right of an individual to keep and bear arms is a fundamental and necessary part of a free society. Wil absolutely disagrees with anyone who argues that the right to bear arms is only a right of a state when arming a militia. Wil has vowed to protect the Second Amendment as a U.S. Senator.
Wil is a business owner, a fifth-generation Arizonan, a father of five and a true conservative who is willing to step away from his successful business ventures to serve the people of Arizona. He grew up in a family business where as a young man he worked on the construction crew and made change at the family's gas stations. He went to both Brigham Young and Stanford for his undergraduate degree and earned an MBA from Harvard. He came back to Arizona to be a part of the family business where he has created hundreds of jobs and a debt free business that has thrived by investing in our community.
