FRC Action PAC Announces Endorsement of Tina Freitas to the Virginia Senate
Washington, D.C. – FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with Family Research Council Action, is endorsing Tina Freitas for election to the Virginia Senate District 24.
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. After evaluating her positions, we believe Tina will be such a leader. She 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.
“Tina has a distinct set of life experiences that uniquely equip her to serve in the Virginia Senate. From running a small business to volunteering on grassroots campaigns to caring for her family, she has demonstrated her unwavering commitment to serve and to the values that have made this nation great. We believe Tina will continue to defend faith, family, and freedom in the Virginia Senate.
“Tina’s opponent in this primary election is Sen. Emmett Hanger. We have been disappointed by Sen. Hanger’s positions on a number of key measures. These include his support of the so-called Equal Rights Amendment which would give big abortion a foothold to argue in favor of taxpayer funding for abortion, as well as his vote against legislation that would have prohibited taxpayer funding of research requiring the destruction of human embryos.
“FRC Action PAC is confident that Tina will be a dedicated advocate for limited government, for individual liberties, and for strong family values. We are pleased to offer our endorsement of her candidacy for election to the Virginia Senate. Together, we can create a culture in which human life is valued, families flourish, and religious liberty thrives,” concluded Boykin.
