Christian conservative group backs Black for governor

 

Press release from Diane Black campaign

Nashville, Tenn. — Family Research Council Action PAC has endorsed Diane Black for Governor. In the endorsement letter, FRC Action PAC Executive Vice President, Lt. General (Ret.) Jerry Boykin praised Black for her leadership on Capitol Hill and the strength she has shown fighting for Tennessee families.

“For Rep. Black’s dedication to the values of faith, family, and freedom, as well as her many votes to protect these values, she’s been a repeated recipient of FRC Action’s ‘True Blue’ award,” Boykin said. “She has a reputation as a leader who doesn’t merely give lip service to her values, but acts on them. Her record of staunch conservatism and her continual commitment to people above policy will undoubtedly serve the people of Tennessee well.”

“The work FRC does to preserve family values is unmatched and our nation is a better place because of their efforts,” Black said. “There are many issues Tennessee’s next governor will have to address, but the most important is that of protecting our Tennessee values because when our values are lost, it’s nearly impossible to get them back. I am honored that FRC will support me as governor to fight for what’s right.”

Diane has proven herself to be a fighter for conservative legislation since first running for office. In Congress, she has sponsored FRC-backed legislation to defund Planned Parenthood as well as the Balanced Budget Amendment and the No Budget, No Pay Act

“She has set out to break the political mold by holding fast to truth that’s often sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. FRC Action is confident that Rep. Diane Black will continue to be a principled advocate for strong family values and personal prosperity, and we are pleased to offer our endorsement of her candidacy for governor of the state of Tennessee,” Boykin added.

Note: The Tennessee Christian conservative version of FRC, Family Action Council of Tennessee, doesn’t make endorsements. But the group does a “voter guide” and posts on its website FACT President David Fowler’s interviews with some candidates answering questions on same-sex marriage, abortion and other topics. Black, Boyd, Lee and Kay White did the interviews and answered the questions. Harwell sent a video instead, with FACT did not post. Democratic candidates Karl Dean and Craig Fitzhugh did not participate.

The candidate interview videos, with transcriptions of the questions and answers, are available HERE. Black’s version is HERE.
