FRC Action PAC Announces Endorsement of Lisa Luby Ryan for Texas State House

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with Family Research Council Action, is endorsing Lisa Luby Ryan in the race for the Texas House of Representatives in the 114th District.

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

"These are challenging times and the nation is looking for leaders who will not just talk about the important issues, but actually address them. We believe Lisa Luby Ryan will be such a leader and know she is committed to establishing a culture in which all human life is valued, families flourish, and religious liberty thrives.

"It has been disappointing to see the record of Mrs. Ryan's opponent, current State Representative Jason Villalba. He has voted against protecting unborn children with disabilities from discriminatory abortion, voted against religious freedom for faith-based child welfare providers, voted to punish business owners for their religious beliefs, and refused to support the protection of safety and privacy for women and children. A change in leadership is needed and Mrs. Ryan is the perfect person for the job.

"Mrs. Ryan's experiences as a wife, mother, and entrepreneur have well equipped her for a role in the State Legislature. Her long history of volunteer, civic, and political leadership have demonstrated her commitment to serving her community and to getting things done. We applaud the persistence and personal testimony she has used to advocate for the protection of the fundamental right to life.

"FRC Action PAC is confident that Lisa Luby Ryan will diligently continue her work in these areas and will be a strong advocate for fundamental freedoms and strong family values. Once again, we are pleased to offer our endorsement and will urge those who care about the future of our nation and freedoms to support her as well," Boykin concluded.
