Press release from the Campaign for Joe Carr for U.S. Senate; July 28, 2014:
NASHVILLE, TN – Eagle Forum PAC, a conservative public policy organization founded by pro-family leader Phyllis Schlafly, has endorsed Tennessee State Rep. Joe Carr for the United States Senate.
“Joe Carr will stand up for families in the U.S. Senate,” said Schlafly. “He is a strong voice for limited government and traditional values. When President Obama and his allies in the Senate attack our constitutional liberties, Joe will always defend them. Joe spoke out against the amnesty that Democrats and establishment Republicans wanted to give to millions of illegal immigrants, and the crisis on our southern border has proved him right. He recognizes the damage that illegal immigration inflicts on Tennessee’s working families. He will fight for a conservative solution that makes border security a priority and restores the rule of law.”
“Phyllis Schlafly has had a long and storied record of conservative activism that has played a significant role in shaping the voices that lead today’s conservative movement,” Carr said. “I am proud and humbled to have the support of a someone so well-respected throughout the conservative movement stand with me in the fight to grow the voice of conservatives in Washington.”
“Every day, the President and liberals in the Senate are working to undermine our most fundamental liberties,” added Schlafly. “Joe understands that our rights don’t belong to the government. He has been a tireless advocate for the unborn, traditional marriage, and the Second Amendment, and he will be the same in the U.S. Senate. President Obama has drawn a line in that sand,” concluded Schlafly, “and he will not back away unless we have strong conservative leaders like Joe Carr standing up and fighting back. Now more than ever, we need to rally behind true conservatives like Joe Carr.”
Eagle Forum PAC supports candidates who are committed to a conservative philosophy of limited government, national sovereignty and traditional values.
