FRC Action PAC Announces Endorsement of Ken Paxton for Re-Election to Attorney General of Texas

WASHINGTON, D.C. – FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with Family Research Council Action, is endorsing Ken Paxton for re-election to Attorney General of Texas.

FRC Action PAC Executive Vice President, Lt. General (Ret.) William G. Boykin commented:

“As Texas’ Attorney General, and during Ken Paxton’s many years of service in the Texas House and Senate, he has been recognized as a stalwart conservative leader who respects our Constitution and stands fast against infringements on his state’s sovereignty. Having fought the Obama Administration on the expansion of the Affordable Care Act, and having defended the religious liberty of Texans against executive over-reach, he has been on the front lines of the battle to maintain the “Texas Model” of governance that his citizens hold dear.

“Attorney General Paxton’s success in fighting human trafficking, the opioid epidemic, and government fraud prove his dedication to the safety and prosperity of Texas. His authorship and support of HB 15 in the 78th Legislature (which prohibits an abortion except by informed consent of the mother), and of HB 15 in the 82nd Legislature (which requires a sonogram be provided to an expectant mother prior to consenting to an abortion) are proof that if re-elected to Attorney General of Texas, he will continue to fight for families and the unborn.

“He has a unique understanding of the issues facing his fellow Texans. FRC Action PAC is confident that he will be a dedicated advocate for limited government, for individual liberties, and for strong family values. Ken Paxton is the leader that Texas needs, and we are pleased to offer our endorsement of his candidacy for re-election to Attorney General,” concluded Boykin.
