This week, the National Rifle Association (NRA) gave frontrunner Amanda Makki the highest rating a non-incumbent candidate can get in an election cycle.
“As a concealed carry permit holder, and a strict interpreter of the Constitution, I fully support our Second Amendment rights. The NRA has just given me and my campaign the highest ‘Aq’ rating, so you can take it to the bank, I will be your strongest advocate and champion in Congress against gun control liberals,” said Makki.
As the Republican frontrunner candidate for Florida’s 13th Congressional District, Amanda Makki has received the endorsements from esteemed military veterans including Representative Lt. General Jack Bergman, the highest-ranking combat Veteran ever to serve in Congress, Senator Joni Ernst, the first female combat Veteran ever elected to the United States Senate, Congressmen Michael Waltz (Lt. Colonel), Congressman Neal Dunn (Major), and combat Veteran Robert O’Neill of the elite Navy SEAL Team 6.
In addition, she is endorsed by House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy, Republican Whip Steve Scalise, Health Care Ranking Member and Physician Michael Burgess, as well as Florida Congressional Representatives John Rutherford and Neal Dunn. Locally, Amanda has the support of Seminole City Councilor Thom Barnhorn, Belleair Beach Mayor Joseph Manzo and Treasure Island Commissioner Tyler Payne. She was named to the National Republican Campaign Committee’s Young Guns program as one of the top “Contender” candidates.
Additionally, Amanda has received over 25 major endorsements including The American Conservative Union, the Conservative groups FreedomWorks, Republican Main Street Partnership PAC, and Maverick PAC as well as groups supporting the strongest female candidates in the U.S. including VIEW PAC, Maggie’s List, and Rep. Elise Stefanik’s E‐PAC, that helps female GOP candidates. She is also supported by the American College of Emergency Physicians and Associated Builders & Contractors Florida Gulf Coast Chapter.
