WASHINGTON, D.C. - FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with Family Research Council Action (FRC Action), has endorsed Jim Banks for Congress in his race for the Third District seat in Indiana. This seat is being vacated by Congressman Marlin Stutzman (R-Ind.) who is now running for U.S. Senate.
Mr. Banks currently serves as State Senator in Indiana where he has proven himself to be a committed advocate for the sanctity of life, strong families, limited government, and the right of the people to live their lives in accordance with their deeply-held religious beliefs.
Mr. Banks has also demonstrated outstanding commitment to the safety and welfare of our nation through his distinguished service in the U.S. Armed Forces. He serves in the U.S. Navy Reserve and took a leave of absence from the State Legislature in 2014 and 2015 to deploy to Afghanistan for Operations Enduring Freedom and Freedom’s Sentinel.
Of the endorsement Lt. Gen. (US Army-Ret.) Jerry Boykin, FRC Action Executive Vice President said:
"These are challenging times and the nation is looking for principled leaders. Senator Banks has compiled a consistent record on the issues that matter most. We are confident that he will continue to be a strong advocate for limited government, for individual and religious liberties, and for family values. We are pleased to endorse him and look forward to working with him to advance faith, family, and freedom."
