WASHINGTON, D.C.FRC Action PAC, the political action committee connected with Family Research Council Action, is endorsing Mark Green for United States Congress in the 7th Congressional District of the state of Tennessee.

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

These formidable times require bold leaders of unwavering conviction. From speaking with Mark Green, consulting with those who know him, and observing his professional record in the Tennessee Senate, we believe he will be just such a leader in the United States Congress.

Mark’s credentials as both a West Point graduate and decorated military veteran will serve him well as a member of Congress. We have noted his deep-rooted desire to promote the interests of working class Americans over special interest groups, and his determination to correct years of stalling on major issues in the U.S. Congress. We commend Mark’s commitment to a limited government and constitutional conservatism.

Mark’s experience as a physician will add a needed perspective in Congress. We applaud his desire to protect the unborn, pass legislation like the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, and end taxpayers’ forced partnership with Planned Parenthood — the nation’s largest abortion provider. Mark understands the great importance of defending our religious freedom and cherished conscience protections so that the government does not force citizens to violate deeply-held religious beliefs. He also respects the central role the family must play if our nation is to thrive.

FRC Action PAC is confident that if elected, Mark Green will continue to advocate for limited government and strong family values. We are pleased to join other notable organizations and individuals in offering our endorsement, and encourage those who care about the future of our nation and our freedoms to do so as well,” concluded Boykin.
