FRC Action PAC Endorses Dan Forest for Governor of North Carolina
Washington, D.C. – FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with Family Research Council Action, is endorsing Dan Forest in his race for Governor of North Carolina.
FRC Action PAC President Tony Perkins issued the following endorsement:
“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. During your tenure as Lieutenant Governor, we have been privileged to work with you on many issues. You understand 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.
“As Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina, you have shown a willingness to take stands that were not popular with the cultural elites. In specific ways you have proven your commitment to defend the unborn, to protect the safety and privacy of women and children, and to promote strong family values. Your leadership resulted in you becoming the first Republican in North Carolina history to ever be re-elected Lieutenant Governor – winning in 2016 by an even larger margin than four years earlier against the same opponent.
“Over the last seven years, you have also defended the rights of public officials and business owners alike to live out their deeply held religious convictions in the workplace. Furthermore, you stood up for the most vulnerable among us when incumbent Governor Cooper vetoed a bill that would have protected babies born alive after surviving botched abortions. We know you will continue fighting for these North Carolina values if elected Governor.
“FRC Action PAC is confident that you will be a dedicated advocate for limited government, for individual liberties, and for strong family values. You are the leader that North Carolina needs, and we are pleased to offer our endorsement of your candidacy. Together, we can create a culture in which all human life is valued, families flourish, and religious liberty thrives,” concluded Perkins
