The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund Wednesday gave North Florida congressional candidate Neal Dunn its highest rating.

Dunn, a Panama City Republican running for the 2nd Congressional District, was rated AQ, “the highest rating possible for a non-incumbent,” the group said. The rating is “based solely on the candidate’s responses to the NRA-PVF Candidate Questionnaire.”

“As a staunch supporter and defender of the 2nd Amendment and the right to bear arms, I am proud to have been endorsed by, and received an ‘AQ’ rating from the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund,” Dunn said in a statement.

“Our 2nd Amendment is one of the most fundamental aspects in our Constitution,” he added. “If elected, I will fight for and protect this right in Congress while defending our Constitution.”

Dunn beat Gov. Rick Scott administration attorney Mary Thomas and former federal prosecutor Ken Sukhia in the GOP primary to succeed Democratic U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham.

She decided to not seek re-election after a redistricting decision radically altered the seat. Dunn faces Democrat Walt Dartland, an attorney, in the November General Election.

Dunn is a urological surgeon, specializing in the treatment of advanced prostate cancer, and is an Army veteran. He also is on the board of directors of Enterprise Florida, the state’s public-private economic development agency.
