FRC Action PAC Announces Endorsement of Rep. Lloyd Smucker for Re-Election to U.S. Congress

WASHINGTON, D.C. – FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with Family Research Council Action, is endorsing Rep. Lloyd Smucker for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives in Pennsylvania’s 11th District.

FRC Action PAC 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. From evaluating Rep. Lloyd Smucker’s record and speaking with others who know him, we believe he will be such a leader. He 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.

“A native Pennsylvanian, Lloyd has a unique understanding of the issues facing his constituents. As the owner of a family-run construction company, he has witnessed firsthand the negative impact that burdensome regulations and taxes have on small businesses. If re-elected to Congress, we believe he will continue to fight for the right of families to run their businesses unimpeded by government intervention.

“During his time in Congress, he has proven himself to be a staunch defender of life, family, and religious freedom. He has supported several pieces of pro-life legislation, such as the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, the Born Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, and the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act. He also supported a resolution that allowed states to withhold Title X funds from Planned Parenthood affiliates. Through his leadership and service, he has demonstrated his commitment to Pennsylvania values and has refused to back down in his support of America’s most cherished freedoms. We believe he will continue to support these values if re-elected to Congress.

“FRC Action PAC is confident that he will be a dedicated advocate for limited government, for individual liberties, and for strong family values. Lloyd Smucker is the leader that Pennsylvania needs, and we are pleased to offer our endorsement of his candidacy for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives. Together, we will create a culture in which human life is valued, families flourish, and religious liberty thrives,” concluded Boykin.
