FRC Action PAC Endorses Jeff Sessions for U.S. Senate in Alabama
Washington, D.C. - FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with Family Research Council Action, is endorsing Jeff Sessions in his race for the U.S. Senate.
FRC Action PAC President Tony Perkins issued the following endorsement:
On behalf of FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with Family Research Council Action, I am pleased to announce our endorsement of your candidacy for election to the United States Senate from the state of Alabama.
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. From working with you and evaluating your record, we know you will be such a leader. You understand 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 your 20 years in the United States Senate, you demonstrated an unwavering commitment to lead on the most fundamental of issues. You stood for the unborn by repeatedly supporting pro-life legislation such as the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act which would prohibit abortion after five months -- the point at which science has confirmed the unborn can feel pain. You also consistently scored a 100 percent rating on our legislative scorecard which scores votes impacting faith, family, and freedom, and you have addressed these issues at our annual Values Voter Summit. As United States Attorney General, you demonstrated your leadership by creating the religious liberty task force at the Department of Justice in order to protect the rights of men and women to live according to their deeply-held convictions. We know you will continue to fight for these critical issues if elected to the United States Senate once again.
FRC Action PAC is confident that you will be a dedicated advocate for strong freedoms and strong families. You are the leader that Alabama needs, and we are pleased to offer our endorsement of your candidacy for election. Together, we can advance a culture in which all human life is valued, families flourish, and religious liberty thrives.
