FRC Action PAC Announces Endorsement of Sen. Dan Bishop for the U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, D.C. -- FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with Family Research Council Action, is endorsing Sen. Dan Bishop for the special election to the U.S. House of Representatives for North Carolina's Ninth District.
FRC Action Executive Vice President, Lt. Gen. (Ret.) William G. Boykin commented:
"This is a critical hour for our country and Americans are looking for bold leaders who are willing to stand strong for faith, family, and freedom. After evaluating Sen. Bishop's positions, speaking with him, and talking to those who know him, we believe he will be just such a leader. Sen. Bishop understands the fundamental importance of protecting the right to life, the central role strong families must play if our country is to thrive, and that religious liberty is the bedrock of a truly prosperous nation.
"During his time in the North Carolina Senate, Sen. Bishop has supported several bills upholding life, family, and religious freedom. In 2015, he voted for a bill that allowed public officials with deeply held religious convictions to decline to participate in marriage duties for same-sex couples. Sen. Bishop has also been a committed advocate for life, supporting several bills in the North Carolina Senate over the last few years that restrict abortion and protect innocent unborn lives. Perhaps most significantly, Sen. Bishop was the lead sponsor of a bill to protect women and children in public showers, locker rooms, and restrooms. With such a sterling public service record of standing up for life, family, and religious freedom, we know that Sen. Bishop will carry these same qualities to the U.S. Congress.
"FRC Action PAC is confident that Sen. Bishop will be a dedicated advocate for limited government, for individual liberties, and for strong family values. He is the leader North Carolina needs, and we are pleased to offer our endorsement of his candidacy for special election to the U.S. House or Representatives," concluded Boykin.
