FRC Action PAC Endorses Pat McCrory for Governor
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with Family Research Council Action, is endorsing Pat McCrory for Governor of North Carolina.
FRC Action PAC Executive Vice President, Lt. General (Ret.) Jerry Boykin commented:
"These are challenging times. Our nation is looking for leaders who are committed to not just talking about the important issues, but boldly addressing them head-on. Pat McCrory's record as Governor makes clear he will continue to be just such a leader.
"We have noted Governor McCrory's work as the architect of the "Carolina Comeback," in which his state has seen a 13.4% increase in GDP since 2013 and the lowest unemployment rate in eight years. Under his leadership, North Carolina has been fastest growing economy in the United States. In addition, he has charted a new course of fiscal responsibility by reducing unnecessary spending, lowering taxes, and eliminating intrusive government red tape. These efforts will be a great help to families of North Carolina who are working hard to make ends meet.
"The nation has watched as Governor McCrory has demonstrated principle and leadership in standing up to big business and an out-of-control city council in order to protect the safety and privacy of North Carolina parents and children. He has been un-swayed by the Obama Administration's government overreach as it issued guidelines on Title IX that dictate the use of all school showers, locker rooms, and bathrooms. His consistent focus has been on results over politics; on common sense over ideological agendas.
"His work in bringing a lawful approach to an issue that was instigated by an out-of-control administration has made clear his commitment to the rule of law. We are confident that he will continue to uphold the Constitution’s required separation of powers in his next term.
"FRC Action PAC is certain that Pat McCrory will be a strong advocate for Constitutional limited government, for individual liberties, and for strong family values. Once again, we are pleased to offer our endorsement, and will encourage those who care about the future of our nation and our freedoms to support him as well," concluded Boykin.
