Brady Campaign To Endorse Hillary Clinton

This one follows an endorsement from former Rep. Gabby Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly.

Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton will get the endorsement of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence on Tuesday.

The endorsement from Brady Campaign President Dan Gross will come at an event in Ames, Iowa.

“Hillary Clinton has been a national leader on gun violence prevention for decades," Gross said in a statement. "More than any candidate on either side of the aisle, she has the experience, record, and demonstrated commitment to help reach the Brady Campaign’s goal of cutting gun deaths in half by 2025."

Former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) and her husband, astronaut Mark Kelly, endorsed Clinton two days ago. Giffords and Kelly have worked to curb gun violence since Giffords was shot in the head in 2011.

Clinton has recently been pushing her record on gun control as a contrast to her Democratic primary opponent, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who has been criticized for voting to protect gun producers and sellers from legal liability if a gun is used in a crime.

Sanders received his own endorsement on Tuesday, nabbing the support of MoveOn.org.
