Giffords Endorses Senator Brian Schatz for the US Senate
Washington DC — Today, Giffords PAC, the gun safety organization founded by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, announced its endorsement of Senator Brian Schatz for reelection to the US Senate.
Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords:
“From his longtime support of commonsense policies to his willingness to defy the gun lobby and stand up for what’s right, Senator Schatz has always prioritized the health and safety of his constituents. In particular, Senator Schatz has recognized the deadly nexus between guns and suicide and is committed to making sure that individuals in crisis have access to the help they need. Firearm suicide is all too often overlooked as part of the gun violence epidemic—even though suicide is responsible for nearly two-thirds of gun deaths each year. Senator Schatz understands that gun violence is preventable. I’m proud to support Senator Schatz for reelection to the US Senate, where he will continue working to build a safer Hawaii and a safer America for generations to come.”
Senator Brian Schatz:
“One of the most important things we can do to stop gun violence is to make sure we have commonsense protections in place that will stop dangerous, violent people from getting their hands on deadly firearms. Like Congresswoman Gabby Giffords, I’m committed to bringing about real gun safety reforms that will keep people safe and save lives. I thank GiffordsPAC for their work, and I’m honored to have their endorsement in my reelection campaign.”
Senator Brian Schatz has dedicated his career to helping the people of Hawaii. As the CEO of a social service nonprofit, lieutenant governor of Hawaii, and now as a United States senator, Senator Schatz has always worked to support those in need and to find solutions that will keep families across his state safe and healthy. A key part of this work is his longstanding commitment to ending America’s deadly epidemic of gun violence.
