Press release from Bob Corlew campaign

Mount Juliet, TN – Today, the Tennessee Right to Life PAC announced its endorsement of Bob Corlew, the conservative Republican for Tennessee’s 6th Congressional District.

In a statement, Brian Harris, President of Tennessee Right to Life stated “Tennessee Right to Life is confident that Bob Corlew has both the temperament and life experience to be an effective advocate in Congress for the cause of life. His community service and shared values demonstrate the leadership qualities needed to protect the most vulnerable.  Tennessee Right to Life PAC strongly urges every pro-life voter to work and vote for his election.”

Upon receiving the Tennessee Right to Life endorsement, Judge Bob Corlew stated “I am honored to be the only candidate in the 6th Congressional District to earn the endorsement of the leading statewide Pro-Life group in Tennessee. In Congress, I will fight to restore Christian conservative values that are under attack from liberals in both parties who want taxpayer dollars funding the nation’s single largest provider of abortion services and continue abortion on demand.”

Note: Corlew is running against businessman John Rose and state Rep. Judd Matheny of Tullahoma in the primary for seat vacated by U.S. Rep. Diane Black, who is running for governor with TRTL’s support (Previous post HERE). The TRTL list of endorsements so far is HERE.

    A most unfortunate endorsement. In Judd Matheny’s career in the General Assembly since 2002 in regards to which he receives an 88% from the American Conservative Union, I wonder how many votes he cast with which the Tennessee Right to Life organization would disagree. The splitting of the conservative vote between Judd and Corlew can only benefit the candidate supported by liberal Democrats and the centrist establishment John Rose.

    This is truly sad. RTL has sold prestige dearly much like the Nobel Prize-just for political expediency.

    Where in the constitution is the congressional mandate for establishing values?
