FRC Action PAC Announces Endorsement of Sen. Ted Cruz for Re-Election to U.S. Senate

WASHINGTON, D.C. – FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with Family Research Council Action, is endorsing Senator Ted Cruz for re-election to the United States Senate for the state of Texas.

FRC Action President, Tony Perkins commented:

“During my many years of working closely with Sen. Ted Cruz on Capitol Hill, I have been impressed with his commitment to the founding principles of our great nation. His belief that America does best when remaining true to its constitutional freedoms has pervaded each year of his impressive leadership in the U.S. Senate.

“I have witnessed his dedication to immutable truth on the Armed Services Committee and the Judiciary Committee, particularly in his call for a special prosecutor to investigate the IRS’ targeting of conservatives, and in his defense of Hobby Lobby against Obamacare’s contraception mandate. A self-made American success story, Sen. Cruz worked tirelessly for his constituents to ensure that their dreams are attainable, their Constitution is protected, their borders are secure, and their families are protected.

“In addition to Sen. Cruz’s leadership expertise, he’s been unafraid to ask tough questions, fight for government accountability, and prevent spending increases which burden American families. His work in divesting Planned Parenthood of American tax dollars, protecting the free exercise of religious freedom, and pushing for deregulation and smaller government demonstrates an understanding of and commitment to a correct interpretation of the nation’s laws. For his dedication to the values of faith, family, and freedom as well as his many votes to protect these values, he’s been a repeated recipient of FRC Action’s ‘True Blue’ award.

“He has set out to break the political mold by holding fast to truth that’s often sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. FRC Action PAC is confident that he will continue to be a principled advocate for strong family values and personal prosperity, and we are pleased to offer our endorsement of Sen. Ted Cruz’s candidacy for re-election to the U.S. Senate for the state of Texas,” concluded Perkins.
