FRC Action PAC Announces Endorsement of Gavin Clarkson for Secretary of State of New Mexico

WASHINGTON, D.C. – FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with Family Research Council Action, is endorsing Gavin Clarkson for election to Secretary of State for New Mexico.

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 Gavin Clarkson’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.

“Gavin has demonstrated a strong commitment to defending life, family, and religious freedom. Not only has he served at several pro-life organizations for the last three decades, but he has also pledged to defund Planned Parenthood in New Mexico and fight for the conscience rights of all individuals, businesses, and organizations. He has pledged to be a strong defender of the family by calling for the repeal of Obamacare, an expansion of the child tax credit, and the safety of women and children in public showers, locker rooms, and bathrooms. Furthermore, he has promised to protect the religious freedom of business owners and members of the military alike, allowing them to live out their deeply-held religious convictions without fear of government reprisal. We believe he will be a champion of these issues if elected Secretary of State of New Mexico.

“FRC Action PAC is confident that Gavin Clarkson will be a dedicated advocate for limited government, for individual liberties, and for strong family values. He is the leader that New Mexico needs, and we are pleased to offer our endorsement of his candidacy for election to be Secretary of State. Together, we will create a culture in which human life is valued, families flourish, and religious liberty thrives,”  concluded Boykin.
