 * * Hunter Described as True Republican of the Party * *

San Diego, CA- - - Congressman Duncan Hunter's presidential campaign continues to gain momentum as he received another endorsement, this time from the Missouri Republican Assembly (MRA) at their quarterly membership meeting.  A member of the National Federation of Republican Assemblies, the MRA voted to endorse Hunter's campaign for President in the upcoming Missouri Republican primary as he represents a strong conservative choice among the other candidates seeking the Republican nomination.
"Congressman Hunter is a true social conservative and honestly represents the Republican Wing of the Republican Party," stated Chris Brown, MRA state President.  "When you add together Duncan Hunter's commitment to the military, American jobs, and fighting for family and life issues, there is no better choice for President. America needs Hunter's integrity, courage and proven leadership."
The MRA works to unite conservatives, both economic and social, whose interests range from tax cuts and reform to national defense, from pro- life to education concerns, from Second Amendment to national sovereignty, and for the advancement of traditional Republican values.  While other candidates are seeking ways to appeal to conservative voters within the party, Hunter's principles, values and consistent 27-year voting record in Congress on Republican issues clearly shows that he represents the conservative choice for the party.
"I thank the Missouri Republican Assembly for their trust and I appreciate their endorsement," stated Hunter.  "As I travel across our great country, I am finding more and more that my message of a strong national defense, enforcement of the border, the protection of American jobs, lower taxes and the sanctity of life is what Americans want in a candidate.  The Missouri Republican Assembly is looking for someone that will have the same priorities they have in the Oval Office and I am happy to work with them on these important issues."
Hunter will be serving as the Grand Marshall in the San Diego Armed Services Veterans Day Parade this weekend before traveling to Nevada where he will participate in a Veterans Day parade in Reno and attend scheduled events in Elko.
