Kansans for Life PAC Endorses
Senator Tim Huelskamp March 18, 2009
“Rarely does Kansans for Life PAC make endorsements this early…but Tim’s stellar credentials, solid background and consistent voting record deserve our immediate support.”
Kansans for Life PAC today announced their endorsement of Tim Huelskamp for the 1st District Congressional race:
According to Chris Martinez, KFL PAC Chairman: “Rarely does Kansans for Life PAC make endorsements this early, but Tim’s stellar credentials, solid background, and consistent voting record deserve our immediate support. We are proud of this endorsement, and enthusiastically support Tim Huelskamp in his efforts to bring his conservative Kansas values to the U.S. Congress.”
For over a decade, Huelskamp has fought to defend the Right to Life in the Kansas state senate. Tim and his wife Angela have also been active in assisting women in crisis pregnancies. Recently, Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee endorsed Huelskamp, writing: “Tim did not tell me he was pro-life, his record did.”
“Tim Huelskamp has an impressive and admirable track record of fighting hard to defend the right to life. He has a 100 percent pro-life voting record, and has consistently been the best friend we have had in the state senate,” said Kathy Ostrowski, Legislative Director for Kansans for Life.
Huelskamp is the only candidate running for Congress in the first district to have made clear his opposition to the nomination of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius as Secretary of Health and Human Services, because of her radical pro-abortion positions. He has previously received the Daniel Award for Courageous Leadership from Kansans for Life.
I wanted you to read this endorsement for yourself, because one of my opponents has been falsely suggesting that certain pro-life leaders are endorsing his campaign. Nothing could be further from the truth. Kansans for Life is the leading pro-life organization in Kansas — with thousands and thousands of members active across the state.
And we are so thankful for their strong endorsement – especially given the heat we’ve gotten in recent days. Some folks simply don’t want us to state the obvious – that Kathleen Sebelius is unfit to serve in Washington. (Read the statement here.) Our principled stand against a radical governor is not what some pundits want to hear. No, they demand we be silent and not expose the extremist agenda represented by Obama and Sebelius.
Taking courageous stands comes with costs. But that is why I am running for Congress – because there are fundamental truth of life, family, and fiscal responsiblity that Washington just doesn’t want to hear.
My wife Angela and I are not afraid to stand up and be counted. How about you? Will you stand beside us with a financial contribution of $500, $200, or even $35? These are difficult times for the entire family as we fight for what is right. And we can not do it without you.
Join Kansans for Life, Governor Mike Huckabee, Ken Blackwell, Concerned Women for America, and hundreds of others in our campaign. We need your prayers and your financial help. Please make an online contribution today!
